Mr Andersons Church, John Street, consisting almost exclusively of ladies, when Mr Thompson delivered another lecture in favour of the immediate abolition of slavery in the West Indian colonies. The assembly was one of the most interesting we recollect to have seen. Not fewer than 1,800 females composing the elite of the beauty and fashion of Glasgow, were present, with only here and there a sprinkling of males, amounting to perhaps a dozen or two, with the exception of the gentlemen who accompanied the lecturer to the bench. The place of meeting originally fixed was the Trades Hall- but our fair friends came forward in such numbers, that not one-half could be accommodated, and an adjournment accordingly took place to the Church. - Anthony Wigham, Esq. was called to the chair, and expressed the high satisfaction he felt at seeing so many of his female friends present - a circumstance which augured well for the success of the righteous cause in which they were all engaged- and it might be predicted that such expressions of public opinion would soon sweep away slavery from every part of the British dominions. He would introduce Mr Thompson, who was not now a stranger to many of them - in fact, he was almost naturalised among us. (Applause.) We were sorry to see that Mr Thompson was labouring under indisposition.Mr Thompson then rose amid great applause.Mr Chairman - Ladies of Glasgow - Mr Anderson, the much respected minister of this chapel, in kind consideration of the state of my health, has allowed me to occupy his pulpit on the present occasion: it being a situation requiring less physical exertion than any other.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
