  • An Appeal in Favor of that Class of Americans Called Africans - Wikisource, the free online library
    Read it if your prejudices will allow for the very truth s sake If I have the most trifling claims upon your good will for an hour s amusement to yourself or benefit to your children read it for my sake Read it if it be merely to find fresh occasion to sneer at the vulgarity of the cause Read it from sheer curiosity to see what a woman who had much better attend to her household concerns will say upon such a subject Read it on any terms and my purpose will be gained The subject I have chosen admits of no encomiums on my country but as I generally make it an object to supply what is most needed this circumstance is unimportant the market is so glutted with flattery that a little truth may be acceptable were it only for its rarity I am fully aware of the unpopularity of the task I have undertaken but though I expect ridicule and censure I cannot fear them A few years hence the opinion of the world will be a matter in which I have not even the most transient interest but this book will be abroad on its mission of humanity long after the hand that wrote it is mingling with the dust Should it be the means of advancing even one single hour the inevitable progress of truth and justice I would not exchange the consciousness for all Rothchild s wealth or Sir Walter s fame Chapter 1 BRIEF HISTORY OF NEGRO SLAVERY ITS INEVITABLE EFFECT UPON ALL CONCERNED IN IT 1 Chapter 2 COMPARATIVE VIEW OF SLAVERY IN DIFFERENT AGES AND NATIONS 35 Chapter 3 FREE LABOR AND SLAVE LABOR POSSIBILITY OF SAFE EMANCIPATION 77 Chapter 4 INFLUENCE OF SLAVERY ON THE POLITICS OF THE UNITED
