Biographies of the three wives of Rev. Adoniram Judson, a missionary from the United States to Burma. Ann Hasseltine (1789-1826) of Bradford, Massachusetts, married the Rev. Judson in 1812 and sailed immediately for Calcutta, India. Upon arrival, they found that the British East India Company and the British government would not allow American-born missionaries to work in India, so they moved on to Rangoon and Seramphore, Burma. Her health in the middle east was never good, and after loosing two babies, she herself died in 1826. Sarah Hall (1803-1845) married George Dana Boardman in 1825, and sailed with him to Rangoon and elsewhere in Burma, to strengthen the missionary work there. They lost their two children, and then Mr. Boardman died in 1831. Sarah continued to work as a missionary, and in 1834 she married Rev. Adoniram Judson. They had four children before her health so declined that he determined to take her home to America, but she died en route. Emily Chubbuck (1817-1854), who published poetry under the pen name of "Fanny Forrester," became the third wife of the Rev. Judson in New York in 1846. They sailed immediately for Burma, where he continued his missionary work until he died in 1850. She then left Burma and returned to America in 1851

Twenty-two years a slave, and forty years a free man; embracing a correspondence of several years, while president of Wilberforce Colony, London, Canada West by Austin Steward( Book )

2 editions published in 1857 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born a slave in Virginia in 1793, Austin Steward escaped bondage, but his road to freedom did not involve the underground railroad or the use of disguises. Nor did he have to escape from slave catchers and bloodhounds. His story is important because of how he achieved his freedom and what he did with his later life. Transported in his youth to upper New York State by a master who fled business and gambling debts in the South, Steward won his freedom in 1815 because of New York's emancipation laws. Then, with the help of sympathetic white friends in Rochester during the 1820s, he became a prosperous merchant. In this revealing autobiography, Steward speaks briefly of his years in slavery: the long hours of drudgery, and the beatings his family endured. After his emancipation, his early concerns in the North were with is own security in a society unfriendly to African-Americans. When he achieved that security, he sacrificed it to aid fugitive slaves and supported a small Canadian community of Americans who had fled there to escape bondage. A poignant study of one man's attempt to overcome prejudice and to prepare other African-Americans for entrance into a predominantly white society, this book - essential reading for students of American and African-American history - also served as a petition for reform. It is invaluable for its descriptions of achievements among free blacks in pre-Civil war society."--Back cover
