The Having of Negroes Is Become a Burden

Michael J. Crawford

The chapter presents the minutes of the Pennsylvania Yearly Meeting for Sufferings held on 16 February 1798. The minutes said that the memorial “issued in a Conclusion of the United States Representatives, that a Remedy for the Grievance complained of is not within their Department.” It concludes “what further may be expedient to do, under the religious pressure of this affecting Case, it is desired may be kept under continued weighty Attention.”
