I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is
wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think, and feel.
And yet I have never understood that the Presidency conferred
upon me an unrestricted right to act officially upon this judgment
and feeling.

(Letter to Albert Hodges, April 4, 1864)
