The Journal of John Woolman

The Journal of John Woolman

This book was published in 1774. Allen reviewed this book in his May 1902 edition of The Light of Reason, saying:
This is the autobiography of a man who, whilst living a comparatively obscure and humble life, so impressed his sterling moral and spiritual qualities upon his generation, as to have become the initial instrument in the abolition of American slavery, the great beauty of his character, and the full significance of his work not being fully recognized until long after his death. A powerfully written introduction by John Greenleaf Whittier, should be sufficient to commend the book, the diction of which is sweet and simple.
