FROM THE REV. JAMES BLYTHE, D. D.
Cincinnati, Nov. 23d. 1831. REV. AND DEAR SIR,
As you know I had the pleasure, some time ago, of looking into a manuscript work of yours on the subject of slavery, it has given me great pleasure to learn that you have thoughts of publishing those letters. A more acceptable present could not be made to the public, in my opinion, particularly at the present time.
As far as I have had it in my power to judge, I do not hesitate to say, that I am better pleased with your work on this subject, than with anything I have seen.
I have only to add, that I hope an enlightened public will not only suitably appreciate your disinterested effort in the cause of suffering humanity, in the liberation of so many of your own slaves; but also receive with a generous patronage, this enlightened and well conducted effort of your pen. With sentiments of great esteem, I am, Reverend Sir,
JAMES BLYTHE. Rev. J. D. PAXTON.
FROM JOHN GREEN, ESQ.
Lincoln, Nov. 18th, 1831. REV. AND DEAR SIR,
I hope you will not fail to make arrangements for the publication of your letters on slavery. In my judgment,
they are, taken as a whole, the best essays I have read on
With high regard,
