From the archives of The Retreat

Here is a poster (via the link) by William Tuke, Thomas Priestman and Lindley Murray in support of William Wilberforce in the Parliamentary election of 1804. it is explicitly anti slavery. The three were also the founding committee of the Friends Quarterly Meeting school, now the Mount. At school we have Lindley Murray’s writing slope and the silhouette picture of him that hangs in the Library. untitled
