Freedom will break the tyrant’s chains,
And shatter all his whole domain;
From slavery she will always free
And all her aim is liberty.
On Slavery
By George E. Allen, aged 12 Years

Slavery, oh, thou cruel stain,
Thou does fill my heart with pain;
See my brother, here he stands
Chained by slavery’s cruel hands.
Could we not feel a brother’s woes,
Relieve the wants he undergoes?
Snatch him from slavery’s cruel smart,
And to him freedom’s joy impart?
