Resolution of the Citizens of Tabor, Iowa, February 7, 1859

Resolved, That while we sympathize with the oppressed, and will do all that we conscientiously can to help them in their efforts for freedom, nevertheless we have no sympathy with those who go to slave States to entice away slaves and take property or life when necessary to attain that end.

J. S. Smith, Secretary.
