He, however, served his country but a few months in this capacity, since on the 30th of June of the same year he was offered by President Jefferson the post of Supervisor of the Internal Revenue for Pennsylvania, which he accepted. About a year later July, he was ap- pointed Collector of the Port of Philadelphia which important and lucrative position he held until his death, which occurred at his home, near that city, on the 1st of October, — the 61st anni- versary of his birth.
Muhlenberg was highly honored in life and death. Two States had learned to love and trust him. Virginia's long list of patriots in that period were his intimate friends, while Pennsyl- vania regarded him as one of her firstborn sons. His death was most of all lamented by his own German countrymen, who had looked upon him as their special leader. He had a family of four children, three sons and one daughter.
Two of his sons survived him, and both attained to some distinc- tion. Peter was a major in the army of the war of 1S12 with Great Britain, while Francis took up residence in Ohio, and was gen. A- grandson served with distinction as a surgeon and medical director in the late Civil War. General Muhlenberg's remains are interred in the peaceful vil- lage graveyard at the Trappe, Pa. His grave is marked by a simple stone containing the following epitaph :!

Though it marks the period of one of the bloodiest wars of history, it represents the culmination and favorable and final decision of the long growing opposition to human slavery. This conflict as it was first carried on in forum, later on the field of carnage, has given many a man imperishable fame for wisdom and power in debate and for valor and heroism in bloody conflict.
The names of Pennsylvania-Germans are written upon the two-fold tablets of fame in this final settlement. But it is to the everlasting glory of our stock that the first protest against negro slavery was made by them. This public protest was written by that noble-spirited German Quaker of Germantown, Francis Daniel Pastorius, as early as , and signed by him and a few of his fellow country- men. Of him Whittier has sung and of him his race is proud. Through the kindness of Mr. Horace J. Smith, of local German- town history fame, this magazine has been favored with a photo- graphic copy or reprint of this historic document the contents of which are here appended : This is to y e Monthly Meeting Held at Richard Worrell's.alexacmobil.com/components/veqynypoq/qig-copiare-rubrica-da.php

These are the reasons why we are against the traffick of men-body, as followeth. Is there any that would be done or handled at this manner? How fearful and faint-hearted are many on sea, when they see a strange vessel, — be- ing afraid it should be a Turk, and they should be taken, and sold for slaves into Turkey. Now what is this better done, as Turks doe? Now, tho they are black, We cannot conceive there is more liberty to have them slaves, as it is to have other white ones. There is a saying, that we shall doe to all men like as we will be done ourselves; making no difference of what genera- tion, descent or colour they are.
And those who steal or robb men, and those who buy or purchase them, are they not all alike? Here is liberty of conscience. W h is an other case. But to bring men hither, or to rob and sell them against their will, we stand against. And we who know that men must not committ adultery. You sur- pass Holland and Germany in this tiling.

This makes an ill report in all those countries of Europe, where they hear off. And for that reason some have no mind or inclination to come hither. And who shall maintain this your cause, or pleid for it?
Truly we can not do so, except you shall inform us better hereof, viz. Pray, what thing in the world can be done worse towards us, than if men should rob or steal lis away, and sell us for slaves to strange countries; separating husbands from their wives and children.

Being now this is not done in the manner we would be done at therefore we contradict and are against this traffic of men-body. And we who profess that it is not lawful to steal, must, likewise, avoid to purchase such things as are stolen, but rather help to stop this robbing and stealing if possible. And such men ought to be delivered out of ye hands of ye robbers, and set free as well as in Europe.
Then is Pennsylvania to have a good report, instead it hath now a bad one for this sake in other coun- tries. Especially whereas ye Europeans are desirious to know in what manner ye Quakers doe rule in their province; — and most of them doe look upon us with an envious eye. But if this is done well, what shall we say is done evil? If once these slaves wch they say are so wicked and stubborn men should joint themselves, — fight for their freedom, — and handcl their mas- ters and mastrisses as they did handel them before; will these masters and mastrisses take the sword at hand and vvarr against these poor slaves, licke, we are able to believe, some will not refuse to doe; or have these negers not as much right to fight for their freedom, as you have to keep them slaves?
Now consider well this thing, if it is good or bad?

And in case you find it to be good to handel these blacks at that manner, we desire and require you hereby lovingly, that you may in form us herein, which at this time never was done, viz. To the end we snail be satisfied in this point, and satisfie likewise our good friends and acquaintances in our natif country, to whose it is a terror, or fairful thing that men should be handeled so in Pennsylva- nia.
