Exemplifying the inner life of the Society of Friends, Woolman's Journal also formed part of his crusade against slavery that would only be realized 150 years later.
John Woolman was born at Northampton, N. J., in 1720, and died at York, England, in 1772. He was the child of Quaker parents, and from his youth was a zealous member of the Society of Friends. His "Journal," published posthumously in 1774, sufficiently describes his way of life and the spirit in which he did his work; but his extreme humility prevents him from making clear the importance of the part he played in the movement against slaveholding among the Quakers.
It is a powerful book.
