Anti-Slavery Society Ladies Meeting Scripture Prophecy Extinction Slavery Abolition Chelmsford Britain
Pamphlet reproducing a speech by the Baptist minister and committee member of the Agency Anti-Slavery Society, Joseph Ivimey, at an anti-slavery meeting in Chelmsford in 1832. He proclaims that the days of slavery were drawing to a close, as prophesised in the Bible, and that the coming Jubilee would set slaves free. Ivimey cites the colonial press and reports to testify to the cruelty of slavery in the West Indies and in Mauritius: "What a brutalizing system is slavery, to transform the noble-minded Briton and the polite and effeminate Frenchman, into tygers and leopards!" (26).
