This chapter focuses on the final years of Zachary Macaulay's anti-slavery campaign. It discusses his organization of the May 1830 meeting of the Anti-Slavery Society and the involvement of his son Thomas Babington Macaulay as a speaker at this event. The chapter highlights the deteriorating health of Macaulay during this time, which was further aggravated by the death of his daughter Jean in September 1830 and his wife Selina in May 1831. It also considers the implications of the passage of the 1829 Catholic Emancipation Act for the anti-slavery campaign and highlights the abolition of slavery throughout the British West Indies in August 1838, three months after Macaulay's death.
