I AM HERE TO SPREAD LIGHT ON AMERICAN SLAVERY
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."
I HAVE COME TO TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT SLAVERY
Neither the exact date nor the occasion of this speech can be determined. The person who recorded it, Philadelphia pacifist Edward M. Davis, said that he heard Douglass speak "when on a visit to Lynn, [Mass.]." The address "was delivered with energy," Davis wrote, "and evidently from one unaccustomed to make speeches, yet it came so spontaneously that it thrilled through every one present, and compelled them to feel for the Wrongs he had endured."
