William Harned, treasurer of the New York State Vigilance Committee, was a well-to do resident of Brooklyn at the time of writing. Harned was raised in Philadelphia's Quaker community, steeped in the belief that slavery was a crime against humanity. He writes, somewhat cryptically: "The Rail Road agents will not now sell tickets through to Canada, & we shall be obliged to make our consignments to you. We shall uniformly pay their expenses to Rochester & then hand them over to your kind attention. . . .Please furnish all that come to you from Gibbs [black UGRR conductor, Jacob R.] or me with a few lines to our friends in Canada, Yours in haste. . .
