Wise Words by Lucretia Mott

Wise words by Lucretia Mott, Quaker preacher & activist: “There is a need for preachers against the existing monopolies and banking institutions, by which the rich are made richer, and the poor, poorer . . . It is contrary to the spirit of this Republic that any should be so rich.” (1857 sermon)
