Petition #10380302


Fourteen residents of Delaware "conceive it to be our duty to call the attention of our Representatives once more to the situation of the People of Colour among us." They uphold that "the recent calamities in the West-Indies" and "the alarms which have disquieted the minds of our brethren in the Southern States and rendered property less secure, are motives we believe sufficiently strong to induce such steps as may lead to a gradual Abolition of Slavery."
