Thank (Jod,there is no more slavery. Thank God, the old times havegone, and better times have come. We, in England,,have felt much for your sorrows, and often prayed God tosend you deliverance; and you' have prayed, and yourfriends in this country have prayed, and God has broughtyou at length out of the land of Egypt and out of thehouse of bondage. Praise the Lord for it. If I hadpreached to you when you were slaves, I don't think Icould honestly have told you to be contented, because Idon't think I could ever be contented myself in a state of slavery.
