This chapter describes Douglass’s extended speaking tour of Great Britain following the publication of his first autobiography.

Attention is paid to two particular religious controversies related to slavery embroiling Great Britain at the time—one concerning the Free Church of Scotland, the other concerning the Evangelical Alliance.
