John Pierpont (Джон Пирпонт)


Economy of Slavery


"One mouth and one back to two hands," is the law
That the hand of his Maker has stamped upon man;
But Slavery lays on God's image her paw,
And fixes him out on a different plan;—
Two mouths and two backs to two hands she creates;
And the consequence is, as she might have expected;
Let the hands do their best, upon all her estates,
The mouths go half fed, and the backs half protected.

  2. Temperance Song
  3. Her Chosen Spot
  4. Come Sign the Vow!
  5. Farewell the Bowl
