ix,147 pages. Green cloth shows some very light smudges. While engaged in the research from which came her biography of Charles Osborn, the author learned about the free produce movement. After much additional investigation she was able to produce this second small volume, which traces this phase of Quaker activity as far as available sources permit. It is an account of the effort, largely by Friends, to secure goods not made by slave labor and to boycott the productions of the slave system. -- John D. Barnhart, Indiana University.
