Letter soliciting donations for the education of former slaves as an alternative to taking sides in the war. “We love our country. We prize the privileges of civil and religious liberty, which, in common with our fellow citizens, we have heretofore enjoyed under its liberal government; and we have no sympathy with any attempt to injure or subvert it. Nevertheless we can take no part in war.”
