First Anniversary of the Kidnapping of Thomas Sims by the City of Boston

First Anniversary of the Kidnapping of Thomas Sims by the City of Boston  (1862) 

FIRST ANNIVERSARY




OF THE


KIDNAPPING




OF


THOMAS SIMS




BY THE


CITY OF BOSTON!




Our fathers commemorated the Massacre of the fifth of March, 1770, till that dark hour was lost in the blaze of the fourth day of July, 1776, and the events which followed it. It is for us, likewise, to keep before the people of the Commonwealth the late infamous deed of the City Government, until it be atoned for and forgotten in the joy of

GENERAL EMANCIPATION

All the lovers of Justice and Liberty are therefore invited to assemble

On MONDAY NEXT,

THE 12th DAY OF APRIL, AT THE

MELODEON!

AT 10 O'CLOCK, A. M.,

To commemorate the First Anniversary of the surrender of THOMAS SIMS, arrested, on false pretences, by a lying and disguised Police; subjected to the farce of a seeming trial before a Commissioner sitting behind bayonets and chains; carried off, at night, by armed men; all under the direction of a City Government confessing that they knew they were violating the laws of the State, and intended to do so; such was their "ALACRITY" in the discharge of this infamous "DUTY." The Morning Session of the Convention will be devoted to an Address by

Rev. THEODORE PARKER,

With appropriate religious exercises. The Afternoon and Evening Sessions, to Addresses from many of the most eloquent friends of the Slave.

BOSTON, April 9th, 1852.
