Excerpt from Brief Memoirs of Thomas Shipley and Edwin P. Atlee: Read Before the Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery, &C, Tenth Month, 1837

Dear Friend - It is with feelings of pleasure, which we are at a loss for words adequately to express, that we perform the duty assigned us, of presenting the enclosed copy of a resolution adopted at the last meeting of the "Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery," &c., expressive of its approbation of the Memoir upon the life and character of our dear, departed friends, Thomas Shipley and Edwin P. Atlee, prepared and read before the Society. The satisfaction which the Society, as well as the large and respectable audience assembled on the occasion, enjoyed, has prompted the request contained in the resolution. To such a requisition, no additional weight can be attached; we will simply express our hopes that it may be complied with.

At a meeting of the "Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery," &c., held Eleventh month 2d, 1837, the following resolution was adopted:

Resolved, That the thanks of this Society be presented to Dr. Isaac Parrish, for the excellent and appropriate Memoir of Thomas Shipley and Dr. E. P. Atlee, read at the last meeting of this Society, and that he be requested to furnish a copy for publication to the Committee of Arrangement.

Dear Friends - Your very kind letter, enclosing a resolution of the "Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery," &c., in regard to the Memoir read by me, on the evening of the inst., was received.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Brief Memoirs of Thomas Shipley and Edwin P. Atlee: Read Before the Pennsylvania Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery, C, Tenth Month, 1837 Although the history of such men may be less fruitful in bold adventure and stirring incidents, than that of those who hold an exalted place in the eyes of the world, yet their characters are, at least, not defaced by the vices and inconsistencies which are so often associated with popular greatness. If to be good is to be great, if to pursue a course of life which is regulated by the Divine principle, and to prefer the path of manifested duty to the honors and emoluments of the world, be noble, then were those whose lamented death has been the cause of the present meeting, entitled to be ranked amongst the great and good.
