Petition #11278203


Four members of "the standing Committee of the People called Quakers (for the Eastern Quarter)" declare that "it is from deliberate consideration and the Conviction of our own minds that we are brought to believe that no Law, moral or Divine, hath given us any Right or absolute Prerogative over our fellow Creatures, so as to deprive them of Liberty and freedom for Life." They therefore "earnestly desire you will take these things in solid Consideration, and Repeal the acts which now prevent Freedom, tolerating such as may receive Liberty, to enjoy it, without danger of being again Reduced to Bondage, but be Deem'd as free People protected by Law."
