Review of the Statement of the Faculty of Lane Seminary in Relation to the Recent Difficulties in that Institution
			
10 [crossed out "6" and misnumbered 9]

Let us now examine the facts of the violence alleged; -- The 

first is the discussion and decision of the two following questions:

I. Is it the duty of the people of the slaveholding states to abolish

slavery immediately?

II. Are the doctrines, tendencies, and measures of the American

Colonization society, and influence of its principal supporters 

such as to render it worthy of the patronage of the Christian public?  

"The discussions were protracted through 17 evenings, and result-

ed in a vote that it is the duty of the slaveholding states 

to abolish slavery immediately; and that the doctrines, ten-

dencies, and measures of the Colonization Society and the in-

fluence of its principal supporters are not such as to render 

it worthy of the patronage of the Christian community."

     The faculty themselves are witnesses that this was no 

hasty decision.  It was the result of protracted and thor-

ough investigation, such as became questions of such 

moment.  Here is at least some evidence of prudence, as 

well as a desire to know the truth.
