Emerson’s journal showing his feelings at this time, before the slave power, aggressive and advancing, left him, as a lover of Freedom, no choice but to fight for her as he could, by tongue and pen, in seasons of peril.

It is one type of (circumstantial 1 ) ad hominem (‘to the person’). So emancipation was declared a legal fact throughout the colonies. For Africans, that day should be one in which we solemnly and somberly reflect on the circumstances that made it necessary.
