Sarah Grimke, on well-treated slaves

Nov. 22, 1836

In a letter to Helen, Garrison refers to the fact that the Grimkes, Angelina and Sarah, had been invited to speak whenever they think it proper, “and to state such facts respecting slavery as they may choose.” … “Sarah has just said, that, although brought up in the midst of slavery, and having conversed with hundreds of well-treated slaves, she has never found one who did not long to be free.”   1
