Freeholders of the County of Northampton: Nothing can prove the necessity of Reform in Parliament more than this fact—that the People of England have been long crying out with one for the Extinction of West-Indian Slavery, and yet the House of Commons has not answered that voice. If therefore you really desire that All the Iniquity, Injustice, Misery, and Cruelty of Slavery in the West Indies (that foulest blot which ever disgraced a civilized and still more a Christian Country), should be effaced for ever, now raise your voices so that they must be heard, and give your votes to none but those who will pledge themselves to do all in their power to abolish Slavery in all the British Colonies, and all over the World!!!
