Excerpt from A Discourse, Delivered at Montpelier, October 17, 1834: Before the Vermont Colonization SocietyThe question, What shall be done with the colored Population Of Our Country? is one that has often been asked during the last sixty years; and as yet, it has received no answer, that has generally been satisfactory. Even before the United States, by the Declaration of Independence, assumed the responsibility of a distinct and separate national existence, there were intelligent patriots who made this question a subject of political speculation, or of christian solicitude. In the progress of time down to the present period, this solicitude has increased into a deep anxiety, and this speculation is maturing into speedy and decided action. The great mass of the population are waking up to the consideration of this subject; so that it may now be considered as morally certain that something will be done. An intelligent, conscientious, and enlightened people will act and must act.But the question still recurs, What shall be done?Now, to this, the American Colonization Society returns one answer; and the American Antislavery Society another. The partisans of these two Associations are engaged in a fierce, or at least an animated controversy. They profess, and I doubt not sincerely, on both sides, to act in the name and by the authority of Jesus; and yet, to a considerable extent, the friends of each Association are endeavoring to prevent the operations of the other.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
