"A Peep at Slavery," from The American anti-slavery almanac, for 1839. Gay and other abolitionists used the media of the day to counter Southern claims about the benevolence of the institution of slavery.
A few months after the last entry in his second notebook, Gay compiled a few more notes on individual pieces of paper. The "addenda" to the "Record of Fugitives" follow below.
