Poems On Slavery

The following poems, with one exception, were written at sea, in the latter part of October, 1842. I had not then heard of Dr. Channing's death. Since that event, the poem addressed to him is no longer appropriate. I have decided, however, to let it remain as it was written, in testimony of my admiration for a great and good man.

To William E. Channing
The Slave's Dream
The Good Part
The Slave In the Dismal Swamp
The Slave Singing At Midnight
The Witnesses
