A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin: Presenting the Original Facts and Documents Upon which the Story is Founded. Together with Corroborative Statements Verifying the Truth of the Work
J.P. Jewett & Company, 1853 - 262 pages
Beecher Stowe received a fair amount of criticism about her so-called "misrepresentation" of slavery with her publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1852. She published this volume the following year, in which she sought to prove the veracity of her portrayal of the institution by laying out her source materials, including eyewitness accounts. As with the novel, Beecher Stowe received tremendous support from many Northerners and abolitionists for this publication and drew heavy criticism from advocates of slavery, especially in the Southern states.

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Page 234 - I have been in the deep ; in journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren ; in weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
