I think the general consensus is that while Chamberlain was sympathetic to the plight of slaves and anti-slavery in general, he wasn’t an ardent abolitionist. This is just off of the top of my head... I’ll have to look up some passages to get you some direct and secondary quotes.

Sounds about right.
