A Life For Liberty; Anti-Slavery And Other Letters Of Sallie Holley Overview

A Life For Liberty; Anti-Slavery And Other Letters Of Sallie Holley. PREFACE I SET out to make this book because my vunerabIe friend Samuel May of Leicester, Massachusetts, and his friend CaroIine F. Putnam of Lottsburgh, Virginia, wished to have it done but as, in the course of my work, I have become better acquainted with Sallie Holley I have counted myself fortunate in being brought into such intimate relations with her mind and heart. She was a rarely intelligent and noble woman, deeply engaged in a great cause, and laying some of its lowliest burdens on herself in a spirit of lofty consecration and mast patient love. Her letters admit us to the donestic side of Abolitionism to an exceptional degree In all of them are interiors as vivid as a Teniers could paint as lornely, too, sometimes.
