An early appeal for abolition in the United States by a Baltimore Methodist evangelical preacher and missionary who espoused this unpopular and dangerous view in a slave state three decades before slavery was abolished. Hersey was also employed by the American Colonization Society in the 1830s as an agent for the new colony of Liberia, and as noted in the later chapters of this volume, he advocates for American slaves to be relocated there under the auspices of the Society and funded by a weekly contribution of three cents by American churchgoers over the course of 30-40 years, "an achievement worthy of a free and Christian nation; and by far the greatest and the best legacy which we could bequeath to our posterity".
