The file on the abolition of slavery has been rewritten. It's terrific just because the men and women who helped to abolish slavery were an amazing group of friends. The file has become one part of the ebook called 12 Gifts from Great Britain. You can read the ebook by paying a mere 75 pence (pound sterling) at Kindle UK or .99 cents at Kindle USA.

Love of freedom inspires
Excellent on Clarkson and the Friends, unaware of the Middletons, underestimating Wilberforce, Hochschild does not understand the source of the abolitionists' determination to end the slave trade, but his book is gripping.
For English readers
For US readers
Why hast thou cast our lot
In the same age and place,
And why together brought
To see each other’s face:
To join in loving sympathy,
And mix our friendly souls in thee?
Didst thou not make us one,
That we might one remain,
Together travel on,
And bear each other’s pain;
Till all thy utmost goodness prove,
And rise renewed in perfect love?
