Dear Brother:—I have been perusing your correspondence with Dr. Dyer on American slavery and the students of the Quincy Mission Institute. Rulers of the people. When will these things go away and the constitution and laws will rule again? I fear for my beloved country—mobs, injustice, and brutality seem to be Missouri’s favorite qualities, and no one takes them to heart!
Dear Sir:—As I remember, I am not sure I did not owe you much for not answering your last letter. But as I have been very ill during my long interval of silence, you will easily excuse the apparent neglect on my part. I thank you for your paper sent to me
Volume 4 Chapter 32
Much information has been obtained from other sources concerning the abuses committed by the authorities and people of the State of Missouri against the Latter-day Saints. My blood boiled with indignation to see the whole Christian world—the whole political world tame, and never raise a sound of warning—without the voice of revelation, or even the facts of the case! Alas, what outrages will not be condoned or turned a blind eye to those in authority and the people in general, who bear an unpopular name, who say an unpopular thing, and are inflicted upon the poor and obscure! We seem to have fallen back into the Middle Ages, when the privileged classes could pour out their sympathies by the hour, with circumstantial and minute details of the loss of their lives, or of some other grave evil that befell one of them. own number; But if they belonged to the common people, the history of the massacre of a thousand defenseless women and children may be written, without emotion, with satisfaction and joy. For example, read Madame de Sévigné’s account in a letter to her daughter, dated October 30, 1675, “Aux Rochers,” in the second volume of de Tocquerville’s Democracy in America. My dear sir, do you think of the treatment which the subject of American slavery receives at the hands of the American press — generally, and especially in the halls of Congress — ? How do you think that three men of the Quincy Mission Institute in this State, without any crime, were sentenced to twelve years’ imprisonment, or only those whom God considers a virtue, since a short time? Please look into this matter, and if you cannot join the kind and fearless, call the attention of the nation or state to these outrages of Missouri, I send you a paper and mark a piece for your inspection. . Read it. I do not know whether you have looked into the whole subject of American slavery; But if you do not, I beseech you; Isn’t that a sin? Yes. So is it okay to regret it? Yes. when? God spares no moment. As long as God commands and is willing to look after the consequences, isn’t it safe to repent and turn away from sin? Of course it is. Well, can any court, state or national, take away my liberty for twelve years (even against their own state laws) for following the letter and spirit of the United States Constitution and the commandments of Jesus? Christ? Should three men be torn from their family, friends, society, and benefits, and drowned in a dungeon for twelve years, for barely teaching a fellow man how to go to a place of learning? Does science—have its own wages, yes, its own person? Let me hear from you. Don’t we have the right to sympathize with each other?
I have the address of Alvin Stewart, Esq., before me, and I take the first opportunity to reply.
You refer me to Madame de Sevigne’s letter to her daughter, dated “Aux Rochers,” 30th Oct., A. D. 1675, in the second volume of de Tocquerville’s Democracy in America; Ask me to examine the subject of American slavery. I did: I made a full and fair investigation of it many years ago—I swore in my youth never to bind my hands, bind my feet, or stifle my tongue—I am a friend of liberty, “universal liberty,” civil and religious. I have hated slavery. I want to see the shackles fall from the feet of the oppressed and the chains of slavery broken. I hate the grip of the oppressor and the rod of the tyrant; Against them I set my eyebrows like brass and my face like steel; My arm groaned with strife. Let the sons of thunder speak, Let victories be won before the cannon’s mouth, Let the lion in his den be bearded; Until then, the cries of the oppressed will not be heard; Until then the wicked will not cease from suffering, and the weary servant will not rest. Great God, has it come to this—that the free citizens of the sovereign state of Illinois could be carried twelve years within the walls of a Missouri penitentiary, and God would count it a virtue for such a crime! For pointing the bondsmen to a state of liberty and law! Doesn’t anyone realize that? Never, no, never! Let the friends of liberty rise like the voice of ten thousand peals of thunder, let their voices be uttered—let them adopt every constitutional means for redress of grievances—let there be concerted effort, and victory is ours. Let the broad banners of freedom be raised, and soon the prison doors will be opened, the captives will be set free, and the oppressed will be freed. Missouri will then remember Immaculate
