Title: Samuel E. Cornish

Speaker or author: Cornish, Samuel E. (Samuel Eli), 1795?-1858

Newspaper or publication: National Anti-Slavery Standard

Speech denouncing the efforts of the Colonization Society. The speaker offered a balanced view in this stressing that the governor of the state was working with their best interests in mind, although he was misguided. He emphasized that the black population hated the white population for their efforts to remove people who by their presence offered a reminder of the guilt created by the institution of slavery. He believed, however, that any form of hate was wrong.
