Title: Voice of the Fugitive - October 8, 1851

Speaker or author: editor

Newspaper or publication: Voice of the Fugitive (1851 - 1852)

The writer responds to what he sees as a new "system of argument" for the continuation of slavery by the Southern Press. He tells his readers that anyone who doesn't question what is printed in newspapers like this may fall for the seeming plausibility of the argument in favor of such a system. The writer uses this same method to make his argument against slavery in response.
