Additional Details

Many Unitarians were abolitionists, but not all. The Irish Unitarians had sent a message to their American brethren in 1844, urging them to oppose slavery, and received no response. Here the Irish tried again, in a message printed in Boston for general distribution, urging that "Christianity holds no fellowship with slave-holding." 5 in OCLC, and none traced at auction; not in Blockson or Afro-Americana.
