Excerpt from The Rebellion Record, a Diary of American Events, Vol. 1: With Documents, Narratives, Illustrative Incidents, Poetry, Etc.; Supplement
For the most tri¿ing reasons, and sometimes for no conceivable reason at all, His Majesty the King of England has rejected laws ... of the most salutary tendency. The abolition of domestic slavery is the great object of desire in those colonies, where it was unhappily introduced in their infant state. But, previous to the en franchisement of the slaves we have, it is neces sary to exclude all further inportations from Africa. Yet our repeated attempts to effect this, by prohibitions and by imposing duties which might amount to prohibition, have been hitherto defeated by His Majesty's negative, thus preferring the immediate advantage of a few British corsairs to the\]asting interests of the American States, and to the rights of human nature deeply wounded by this infamous prac tice. [loud cheers.
