Excerpt from Speech of Samuel Webb: In the National Anti-Slavery Convention, Held at Albany, N. Y. On the First Day of August, 1839 The Business Committee having reported the following resolutions - "1. Resolved, That we will neither vote for, nor support the election of any man for President, or Vice President of the United States, or for Governor or Lieutenant Governor, or for any legislative office, who is not in favor of the immediate Abolition Of Slavery. "2. Resolved, That every abolitionist who has a right to vote, be earnestly entreated to lose no opportunity to carry his abolition principles to the polls, and thereby cause our petitions to be heard through the medium of the ballot-box. "3. Whereas, The subject of nominating distinct anti-slavery candidates for offices in the gift of the people, has been presented to this Convention, - Therefore, "Resolved, That it be recommended to abolitionists to adopt such course in their respective sections of country, in regard to this matter, as will, in their judgment, best subserve the cause of immediate abolition." Samuel Webb, Chairman of said Committee, addressed the Convention as follows: Allow me to embrace this opportunity to state some of the reasons which have induced me, and which I hope will incline you to vote for these resolutions. Upon the result of your deliberations rest the hopes and the fears of "Our countrymen in chains." There was a time when the virtuous and the good freely and fearlessly exercised their right to think, - to write, - to print, - to publish, - to speak, and to act, in behalf of suffering humanity - When such men as Lay, Benezet, Franklin, and Lafayette, dared to plead for the rights of colored Americans. Now, so far from being able to plead successfully for them, we have occasion to speak of and for ourselves - our Own rights have been assailed! It is no longer a question of slavery for the black man, but of liberty for the white man! Our respectful petitions to our representatives in our national legislature, have been contemptuously thrown upon the table - our constitutional right of enjoying freedom in each and in every State of this Union has been denied - a Senator in Congress has publicly and tauntingly threatened us with death if we dare come to the South, and our own Senators tamely heard the insulting threat, without daring to repel that audacious menace. Shall we silently submit to such indignities? No! "If we have whispered truth, whisper no longer! - Speak as the tempest does, sterner and stronger!" Let us no longer prostrate ourselves before the South in the humble and despised attitude of petitioners, but arising in the native majesty of freemen, let us say to the haughty southron: "Thus far shalt thou go, but no farther."
