Description: Speech on Colonization, anonymous, ca. 1863. A speech delivered on the efficacy and possibilities of emancipation with colonization, suggesting the expatriation of American slaves to the Caribbean upon emancipation (Figures 9 & 10.) A fascinating speech, not entirely without compassion, but pretty adamant about removing freed slaves from the U.S., possibly to Haiti, so it also falls within our West Indies Collection. String-tied sheets. Handwritten in cursive with some corrections and penciled annotations. Includes several brief newspaper clippings (one clipping lacking). Title at the top of the first page. Date from dealer's catalog. Author anonymous. The transcript for the Speech of Colonization is available and can be viewed by selecting "page & text" from the upper left hand "view" menu.
