Subject: re: Constitutionally, Slavery Is No National Institution
To the Editor:
While leaving lesser crimes (like murder) to the States, our nation's founders wrote the fugitive slave clause right into our constitution. Harboring another man's slave is thus a high crime on the order of treason. No logical argument can get from here to prof. Wilenz' conclusion that we "did not sanction slavery in national law".
