'63 3 At the Perilous Fountainhead The morning after Langton's dinner party Clarkson appeared at James Phillips's printshop to ask hirn to summon the Quaker abolitionists to hear the news that Wilberforce had taken up the cause. The members were easily reached; it would be their fourth meeting that May of 1787. 1 In the brief interval of waiting, Clarkson sounded out by letter and in person Dr Peckard, Lord Scarsdale, Dr Baker and others about joining a society to work for the abolition of the slave trade.
