Summary
  • This folder contains a number of different items with different call numbers. Mss.Acc.1044 is an unsigned draft of a letter from A.A. Phelps to Francis Wayland where Phelps challenges Wayland's "let alone" policy towards slavery. He discusses the power of a moral appeal against slavery, quoting such authorities as Daniel Webster and Duff Green, and arguing that "the great conflict is to be decided by the strength of the moral appeal," of abolitionists and their opponents. Phelps then dicusses Wayland's book, "The Limitations of Human Responsiblity" and the differences between "responsibility" and "obligation." The last page of the letter is on a smaller page, where Phelps reduces Wayland's "thirty six pages of 'Limitations' ... [to] five simple & selfevident truisms!"
