A letter to John Quincy Adams written by J.H. Tredgold on behalf of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society. In his letter, Tredgold encloses publications from the Society to Adams. The Society expresses its appreciation to Adams for the "valuable and important services you have on various occasions rendered to the cause of human liberty and happiness" and his "patriotic and benevolent exertions which have uniformly marked your public and private character." The Society rejoices at the steady increase of abolitionism in the United States and "hope that the day is not far distant when the curse and stain of slavery may be forever removed from your enlightened country."
