Edward Rushton wrote to George Washington

"A decade later [1797] he [Rushton] wrote to his former hero George Washington, pointing up the hypocrisy of retaining slaves while fighting for freedom: ‘In the name of justice what can induce you thus to tarnish your own well-earned celebrity and to impair the fair features of American liberty with so foul and indelible a blot’ " (Rowley, Superlist)
