Though I felt uneasy at the thought of writing an instrument of slavery… through weakness I gave way and wrote it; but… said before my master and the Friend that I believed slavekeeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion. This, in some degree, abated my uneasiness; yet… I should have been clearer if I had desired to be excused from it, as a thing against my conscience.
