1. Constitution of the New-England Anti-Slavery Society: With an Address to the Public (Boston: Garrison & Knapp, 1832). (16 p.)

Constitution of an anti-slavery society followed by a ten-page open letter explaining the mission and rationale of the organization. The Society bases its fundamental principle on the Golden Rule (Matthew 7:12 or Luke 6:31) and its creed on the biblical text, “That God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26, emphasis added by the Society).
