James Mott, President of the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society, has said that the day on which John Brown is executed should be observed with "suitable solemnities." The Society has passed resolutions regarding the tolling of bells, closing of businesses, appropriate kinds of speeches and sermons to be delivered, etc. The customary kinds of demonstration of "heartfelt sorrow" should be expressed. The paper adds a sentence saying that the people should pray to the good Lord "to save them from a like fate."
