In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Acknowledgments First, we want to thank Dana Greene for Lucretia Mott: Her Complete Speeches and Sermons (1980). Her edition formed the essential framework for this project. Greene located, transcribed, and published a number of the addresses we have selected for our volume. Additionally, we have been inspired by the work of the late Margaret Hope Bacon, most notably her biography of Mott, Valiant Friend (1980, 1999). At the Friends Historical Library, Swarthmore College, archivists Susanna K. Morikawa, Patricia C. O’Donnell, and Celia Caust-Ellenbogen located necessary documents to complete annotations. Also at Swarthmore College, our advisory board members Bruce Dorsey, professor of history, and Ellen Ross, professor of religion, shared their wisdom at key moments in the project. Patricia C. O’Donnell, with the assistance of Kate Carter at McCabe Library, Swarthmore, skillfully designed the illuminating website “Lucretia Mott Speaks: A Timeline of her Spoken Ministry,” which lists all of Mott’s known speaking engagements. The History Department at Pomona College provided office space, computer support, photocopying, and printing. Thanks to Gina Brown-Petty, administrative assistant, and Todd Shimoda, Information Technology Services, for their help. Benjamin Cohen (Pomona 2016) ably contributed to proofreading a portion of Mott’s addresses. The Syracuse University History Department, especially chair Michael Ebner, Syracuse University Libraries, particularly Interlibrary Loan and Library Delivery, and James Steinberg and Michael Wasylenko of the Dean’s Office of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, supported this project in numerous ways. We are grateful to Molly Jessup for assistance with proofreading and verification, and to Tammy Hnat for her computing expertise. We thank the following repositories for allowing us to include documents from their collections: Friends Historical Library, Swarthmore College, for printed and manuscript sermons and speeches from various collections; Special Collec- 218 Acknowledgments tions, Haverford Library, for an excerpt from the Julia Wilbur Diaries; Historical Society of Pennsylvania, for a meeting record from the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Papers; and Massachusetts Historical Society, for excerpts from the Dana Family Papers. Laurie Matheson, director of the University of Illinois Press, efficiently guided our proposal to publication. We have benefited from the hard work of Jennifer Comeau, who supervised the publication process, and Maria denBoer, who copyedited the book with precision and care. Special thanks to Anne Boylan and Thomas Hamm for their careful and perceptive reading of our manuscript. Finally, we deeply appreciate the support of our families as we prepared this book for publication. ...
