Sample Source for The Anti-Slavery Debates

Henry Bowen and the Abolitionists. "Because Bowen and McNamee refused to sign the call for a meeting to be held at Castle Garden, New York City, to endorse the Fugitive Slave Law, which call had been signed by several thousand merchants, they were publicly attacked and reviled by the press throughout the country, and particularly so by "The Journal of Commerce" of New York. At last, in self defense, the firm published a card, which has since been quoted the world over." From Lineage of the Bowens, written by Edward Bowen in 1897.
