Dont disobey compromises

To The Editor,
In a recent issue of The Liberator you published an article entitled Fugitive Slave Law Enforced in Boston! , in which the writer argues that The Fugitive Slave Law is a horrible idea. As the senator who compromised with this great Law, i definitely disagree with this article. This Law is essential to the countrys survival.

The Fair Law for Many.

To the Editor,
I'm responding to henry clays letter in which he argues that the "THE FUGATIVE SLAVE LAW" is unfair and bad for others. I sincerely disagree with you. I think that this law was a smart chose because slave owners should be able to get their run away slaves back because it wasn't their fault his slaves ran away from them. Why do you not agree with this law? has it done any harm to you? This law is perfect for all people that would like the slaves they bought off others kindly returned to them.
Thank you for considering my views.
Yours truly,
Abraham Lincoln

Your wrong.

To the Editor,

I am responding to Abraham Lincoln's comment. I disagree with the law but, i was willing to keep the law ,if California was admitted into the country as a free state.
