The Epistle from the Yearly-Meeting, Held in London, By Adjournments, from the 20th to the 28th of the Fifth Month, 1793, inclusive, to the Quarterly and Monthly Meetings of Friends in Great Britain, Ireland, and Elsewhere

[London]: [Society of Friends], 1793.

Very good. 3, [1] pp. Bifolium, 13 x 8 inches. Signed in type at the bottom of page 3 by George Braithwaite; docketed on page [4], "The Yearly-Epistle, 1793, " Old folding creases, generally a bit rumpled, a few tiny tears. Content touches on slavery: "Our correspondence with our brethren in Ireland and on the continent of America, is maintained, and we have received Epistles from all the Yearly Meetings, informing us of their concern for the cause of Truth; and, in some of those from America, of their continued care to be, as opportunities offer, the advocates of the oppressed Black people. The slow progress in this country of the cause of these our fellow-men we lament, but do not despair of its success; and we desire Friends may never suffer the cause to cool on their minds, through the delay, which the opposition of interested men hath occasioned, in that the longer the opposition remains, the more necessity there is, on the side of righteousness and benevolence, for steadiness, perseverance, and continued breathing of spirit to the God and Father of all, who formed of one blood all the families of the earth."
