In what ways do these two excerpts compare?

Short Essay (250-300 words) Although overall their histories have been quite different, Russia and the United States shared a common feature in the 1860s. They were the only states in the Western world that still had large enslaved populations (the Russian serfs were virtually slaves). There are two short excerpts from the emancipation declarations from Emperor Alexander II of Russia and President Abraham Lincoln on page 510, “Emancipation: Serfs and Slaves.”  In what ways do these two excerpts compare? What provisions did they acknowledge for the freed slaves/serfs?
