This pamphlet is Channing's critical response to a speech on the subject of slavery delivered by Henry Clay in the U.S. Senate on February 7, 1839. Clay believed that emancipation could only be achieved through the dying out of the slaves or by repatriation, because of the impossibility of the two races living freely without collision or subjugation of one by the other. Channing rebuts this stance and asserts the importance of humanity and moral conscience.
