Let us turn to our more immediate representatives, and we trust more faithful servants. Our State Legislatures will not refuse to hear our prayers. Let us pet.i.tion them immediately to rebuke the treason by which the Const.i.tution has been surrendered into the hands of the slaveholders--let us implore them to demand from Congress, in the name of the free States, that they shall neither destroy nor abridge the right of pet.i.tion--a right without which our government would be converted into a despotism.
We call on you, fellow citizens of every religious faith and party name, to unite with us in guarding the citadel of our country's freedom. If there are any who will not co-operate with us in laboring for the emanc.i.p.ation of the slave, surely there are none who will stand aloof from us while contending for the liberty of themselves, their children, and their children's children.
To the rescue, then, fellow citizens! and, trusting in HIM without whom all human effort is weakness, let us not doubt that our faithful endeavors to preserve the rights HE has given us will, through HIS blessing, be crowned with success.
