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 
proposed at a previous meeting of the Society, nor shall an election take 
place in less than one month after the time of his being proposed. 
The concurrence by ballot of two-thirds of the members present at a 
stated meeting shall be necessary for the admission of a member. 

Foreigners, or persons who do not reside in the city of Philadelphia, 
may be elected corresponding members of the Society, without being 
subject to an annual payment, and ?;hall be admitted to the meetings 
of the Society during their residence in the city. 

XI. Every member upon his admission, shall subscribe the 
constitution of the Society, and contribute one dollar annually, 
towards defraying its contingent expenses : (Provided, that any mem- 
ber paying at one time the sum of thirty dollars or upwards, shall be 
exempt from all future annual contributions.) If he neglects to pay 
the same for more than two years, he shall, upon due notice being given 
him of his delinquency, cease to be a member. 

XII. The Society .^hall meet on the last Fifth-day called Thursday, 
in the months called March, June, September and December, at such 
place as shall be agreed to by a majority of the Society. 

XIII. No person holding a slave shall be admitted a member of this 
Society. 

XIV. No By-law or alteration of this constitution shall be made, 
without being proposed at a previous meeting. All questions shall 
be decided, where there is a division, by a majority of votes. In 
those cases where the Society is equally divided, the presiding officer 
shall have a casting vote.
