Woolman moved to New Jersy in 1741 to enter trade at Mount Holly. He worked as a tailor and schoolteacher to support himself as he acted as a Quaker preacher. From 1743, Woolman travelled the length and breadth of the eastern shores preaching and extolling owners against slavery, selling rum to the Indians and other vices. He kept his Journal for 16 years which was published in 1774. He also published two essays, Some Considerations on the Keeping of Negroes, in 1754 and 1762.
