Excerpt from Lives of Female Mormons: A Narrative of Facts Stranger Than Fiction The institution of slavery in a free government is a paradox, and gives the lie to the professions the authors of this republic made, else have we shamefully perverted their gifts - which, it is not hard to say. Territory which they pledged to be free has been overshadowed by the darkness of African servitude the political inﬂuence of such an institution has grown apace with each additional State adopting negro prop erty as a basis of representation in Congress - and thus has the free government of our fathers become but free in form, to protect a tyranny such as no civilized nation on the face of this earth would tolerate. The responsibility of such a perversion rests with the degenerate sons of noble sires, and the future will not fail to fasten the record where it belongs.
