"One day while plowing I heard a voice,"
whether inside me or outside of me I knew not,
but I was awake.
It said, ?Go thou and see the president.'
I answered, ?Yea, Lord, thy servant heareth.'
and unhitching my plow, I went at once to the house and
said to mother,
?Wilt thou go with me to Washington to see the president?'
?Who sends thee?' she asked.
?The Lord,' I answered."

In September of 1862, Isaac Harvey, Quaker farmer,
and his wife, Sarah Edwards Harvey, traveled to
Washington D.C. to speak to President Lincoln on
their concern for the emancipation of the slaves.
At the conclusion of their visit, he gave them a note,
which ended with these words:
"May the Lord comfort them as they have sustained me."

The Emancipation Proclamation
was announced on September 22, 1862.

Isaac Harvey (1809-1883), his wife Sarah (1812-1902), and
their family were members of Springfield Friends Meeting
and lived on Lebanon Road, Adams Township,
Clinton County, Ohio.
