- n. Alternative spelling of drafter.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But the draughter of the address has made no attempt to prove that this is actually done in the sacred Scriptures.
When, however, the distinguished draughter of that address comes to answer the objection, "God's word sanctions slavery, and it can not, therefore, be sinful," he forgets the essential limitation of the proposition which he had undertaken to establish, and proceeds to prove that the Bible condemns slaveholding, and not merely the kind or system of slavery which prevails in this country.
