He advocated resistance to the Fugitive Slave Law, and was ready to defend with sword and pistol the fugitive slaves he sheltered in his home. His speech in Faneuil Hall was the pretext for his arrest and trial. He used the trial to speak at length against the immorality of slavery and kidnapping, using historical examples. This is the published speech from his trial. A near fine copy in brown publisher's cloth stamped in blind and gilt. Half-inch loss to cloth on spine; extremities worn.
