'Aelwyd F'ewythyr Robert neu, Hanes Caban F'ewythyr Tomos', in English 'My Uncle Roberts Home, or the History of My Uncle Tom's Cabin', is a piece of anti-slavery literature, written by William Rees (Gwilym Hiraethog) and inspired by 'Uncle Tom's Cabin', written by American author and abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe. Like Stowe, through his literature, Rees called for the abolition of slavery in the Americas. Anti-slavery literature, such as this, helped to bolster and fund the abolition movement.
