CONSTITUTION

OP THE

PENNSYLVANIA SOCIETY

FOB

PROMOTIiNG THE ABOLITION OF SLAVERY, &c.

As revised and adopted Ninth mo.. {September,} 29th, 1859.



It having pleased the Creator of the world to make of one flesh
all the children of men — it becomes them to consult and promote each
other's happiness, as members of the same family, however diversified
they may be, by color, situation, religion or different states of society.
It is more especially the duty of those persons who profess to maintain
for themselves the rights of human nature, and who acknowledge the
obligations of Christianity, to use such means as are in their power,
to extend the blessings of freedom to every part of the human race :
and in a more particular manner, to such of their fellow creatures as
are entitled to freedom by the laws and constitutions of any of the
United States, and who, notwithstanding, are detained in bondage by
fraud or violence. From a full conviction of the truth and obligation
of these principles — from a desire to diffuse them, wherever the miseries
and vices of slavery exist, and in humble confidence of the favor and
support of the Father of Mankind, the subscribers have associated
themselves under the title of the " Pennsylvania Society for promoting
the Abolition of Slavery, and the Relief of Free Negroes unlawfully
held in Bondage, and for improving the condition of the African
Race."

For effecting these purposes, they have adopted the following con-
stitution :

I. The officers of this Society shall consist of a president, two vice-
presidents, two secretaries, a treasurer, a librarian and twelve coun-
sellors, viz. four from the city of Philadelphia, and the remaining
eight from such other places as the Society may from time to time de-
termine. A board of education of thirteen, an acting committee of
seven, and a committee on property, of three members, all of whom



11

«?hall be chosen annually by ballot, oa the last Fifth-day calletl Thurs-
day, in the month called December.

II. The president, or in his absence one of the vice-presidents, shall
preside in all the meetings, and subscribe all the public acts of the
Society. The president, or in his absence, either of the vice-presidents,
shall moreover have the power of calling a special meeting of the
Society whenever he shall judge proper. A special meeting shall like-
wise be called at any time, when six members of the Society shall con-
cur in requesting it.

III. The secretaries shall keep records of the proceedings of the
Society, and shall correspond with such persons, and societies, as may
be judge<I necessary to promote the views and objects of the institu-
tion.

IV. The treasurer shall keep all the monies and securities belong-
ing to the Society, and shall pay all orders signed by the president or
one of the vice-presidents, and countersigned by one of the secretaries,
and abio such orders aa are referred to in Articles VII and VIII, which
orders shall be his vouchers for his expenditures.

He shall have charge of the corporate seal, and affix the same when
required by the Society. He shall report quarterly the balance in the
treasury, to the credit of each account, and annually render a full
statement of his receipts and expenditures. He shall, before entering
upon his office, give a bond of not less than eight hundred dollars, for
the faithful discharge of his duties.

V. The librarian shall have charge of and keep a catalogue of the
books and papers of the corporation, and see that they are preserved
from loss or damage. He shall keep a record of all papers or books
loaned, requiring the same to be returned to the library within one
month. -^—

VI. The business of the counsellors shall be to explain the laws
and constitutions of the States, which relate to the emancipation of
slaves, and to urge their claims to freedom, before such persons or
courts as are authorized to decide upon them.

VII. The board of education shall superintend the schools establish-
ed by the Society, and shall have the management of the funds appro-
priated to educational purposes. They shall also consider, suggest and
and supervise measures for the improvement of the condition of the
colored people, and from time to time prepare, and with the consent of
the Society publish statistics and reports thereon.

Five members shall constitute a quorum to transact the general con-
cerns of the board. All orders, drawn by their chairman, and attested



12

by their secretary, shall be paid by the treasurer of the Society. They
.shall keep regular minutes of their proceedings, and produce them at
every stated meeting of the society.

VIII. The acting committee shall transact such business as shall
occur in the recess of the Society, and report the same at each quar-
terly meeting. They shall have a right, with the concurrence of the
president or one of the vice-presidents, to draw upon the treasurer for
such sums of money as shall be necessary to carry on the business of
their appointment; and be authorized to employ a clerk to transcribe
their minutes into a book provided for the purpose. Four of them
shall be a quorum.

IX. The committee on property shall have supervision over the
real estate of the Society, and direct all necessary repairs.

X. No person shall be admitted to membership who has not been
