Definition of manumit:
Another of your charges against abolitionists is, that, although " utterly destitute of Constitutional or other rightful power- living in totally distinct communities- as alien to the communities in which the subject on which they would operate resides, so far as concerns political power over that subject, as if they lived in Africa or Asia; they nevertheless promulgate to the world their purpose to be, to manumit forthwith, and without compensation, and without moral preparation, three millions of negro slaves, under jurisdictions altogether separated from those under which they live."- "The Anti-Slavery Examiner, Omnibus", American Anti-Slavery Society.
