a British author and abolitionist. He first attended a school in Stoke Newington, Middlesex, but after a bout of smallpox he was moved to Charterhouse School. He subsequently attended Corpus Christi College, Oxford where he became a master debater. He was well known for the children's book The History of Sandford and Merton (1783–1789) which emphasized Rousseauvian educational ideals. In 1773, Day published his first work — The Dying Negro — a poem he had written with John Bicknell. It tells the story of a runaway slave, and sold well.
