There is a large body of abolitionists in Clinton and Clark Counties in this state, and in Wayne County Indiana, that would undoubtedly support such a store, but whether their support would be sufficient, I am unable to say.

The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat oneself.
That a majority of the Abolitionists in this place would patronize a free labor store, in preference to others, I do not doubt; but we do not muster money in Cincinnati.
Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, but for its use.
