Actor - "They who desire me to be dumb on the subject of slavery, unless I will open my mouth in it's defense. Asked me to give the lie to my professions, to degrade my manhood, and to stain my soul. I will not be a liar, a poltroon, or a hypocrite. To accommodate any party, to gratify and sect, to preserve any institution, or to promote any object...And I will no longer subscribe to the Declaration of Independence."
