At a Meeting of the Committee of the Newcastle Emancipation and Aborigines Protection Society, on the 27th of December, 1839;

(MR. FINLAY IN THE CHAIR;)

It was resolved, that it is expedient to reprint, in a cheap form, an article from the London and Westminster Review, of December, 1838, containing an account of the Oberlin Institute, and entitled “ The Martyr Age of the United States;” and that the Secretaries be requested to wait on a number of the Friends of the Anti-Slavery cause, for donations in aid of the Oberlin Institute, and for defraying the expense of such printing

And that the article in the London and Westminster Review be published under the direction of Miss H. Martineau, Mr. Finlay, and Mr. Wm. Cargill.

TO THE COMMITTEE OF THE NEWCASTLE EMANCIPATION AND

ABORIGINES PROTECTION SOCIETY.

GENTLEMEN,

We are happy to proceed in the task assigned us by your resolution of the 27th instant, believing that the righteous deeds and words of the suffering Abolitionists of the United States have only to become known in this country, to secure a large measure of sympathy and aid to the noblest cause that society, in the present age, is called upon to sustain.

HARRIET MARTINEAU.
James FINLAY.
WILLIAM CARGILL.

December 30, 1839.
