Happy Birthday William Wilberforce

I’ve just seen that William Wilberforce was born on 24 August 1759, making yesterday the 250th anniversary of his birth. Happy Birthday, sir!

I did a brief spot on Wilberforce (the transcript of which is available here) in a church service on 25 March 2007, when we were marking the 200th anniversary of the passing of the Abolition Bill.
