Report from the Ohio Yearly Meeting of Friends [Quakers] “To the next yearly meeting of Friends to be held in Baltimore” signed by Amos Wilson with excellent anti-slavery content: “... the subject of slavery has claimed a large share of our attention and although we have not been enabled to put forth much effort in behalf of the oppressed bondman, there is a warm sympathy felt in this meeting for that class of our population. we have however with much unity adopted a form of petition to our state legislature asking that body the repeal of all laws creating distinctions among our citizens on account of color ...” Members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers, have had regular ‘Yearly Meetings’ since 1668.
