I AM HERE TO SPREAD LIGHT ON AMERICAN SLAVERY
AN ADDRESS DELIVERED IN CORK, IRELAND, ON 14 OCTOBER 1845
Cork Southern Reporter, 16 October 1845 (Supplement). Another text in Cork Examiner, 15 October 1845. On the afternoon of 14 October 1845, approximately a week after arriving in Cork, Douglass delivered an antislavery lecture in the city courthouse. The Southern Reporter noted that long before the meeting was scheduled to begin, the building was "densely crowded in every part." The gallery was "thronged with ladies" who seemed to "take the liveliest interest in the proceedings." The Cork Examiner reported the presence of "over one hundred ladies" and a "large audience of respectable gentlemen and citizens."
