Excerpt from History of the Underground Railroad in Chester and the Neighboring Counties of Pennsylvania
It is with feelings of much gratification that he is able to present to the readers the portraits of many of the leading men and women who were actively engaged in the Underground Railroad, who dared to open their houses to the fugitive slave, and to do unto him as they would be done by. With the exception of a few cuts, furnished through the kindness of William Still, all have been engraved expressly for this work from the best likenesses in the possession of the families.
