Draft of a resolution of slavery from Samuel May, Jr., Worcester, [Mass.], [October?] 1842
May tried to persuade the Autumnal Unitarian Conference to pass a resolution declaring that the Gospel of Christ did not warrant or sanction the existence of slavery. May's own comment on his effort was that "there was manifested a great unwillingness to express any opinion on the subject, and the convention adjourned without taking any action upon it."
