Hampden writes to the Liberator discussing a loan to finance the Mexican-American War, arguing that "money lent for the purpose of carrying on a war of aggression and conquest, and for the extension of slavery, ought never to be paid." Hampden suggests not repaying the loan would "put an end to wars got up by slaveholders" and belives that "a dissolution of the Union" or "force of public opinion operating through the Congress of the U. States" could stop any attempt to repay the loan. Hampden adds that "these matters should be discussed at the approaching anniversary of the American Anti-Slavery Society."
