Address to the Nation: An Appeal against Mob Violence Signed by Hundreds of Well-Known Citizens [anti-lynching petition]
New York: n.pub, 1919. Approximately 5.5x13 inch broadside with blank area at bottom for signatories to add their names and addresses (this example blank); faint fold creases. "Patriotic citizens throughout the country feel the shame which lynchings cast upon the Nation, but they have assumed partial responsibility for this shame by their silence and their acquiescence. The time has come when citizens of the United States can no longer contemplate without protest the setting at naught of the fundamental principles upon which their citizenship is based. They can no longer permit open contempt of the courts and lawful procedure. They can no longer endure the burning of human beings in public, in the presence of women and children..." The same text also appeared in The Survey, August 2, 1919 (see "Lynching and Vigilantism in the United States: An Annotated Bibliography" by Norton H. Moses, no. 3402) and in The American Missionary.
