He ends his treatise this way: “We cannot put an end to African slavery, if we would -- and we ought not, if we could -- until God opens a door to make its termination a blessing and not a curse. When He does that, slavery in this Union will end.”~~First published in 1841, this book is uncommon in commerce; it is not found in Blockson. (Savind 92870, Haynes 17808).
