THOUGHTS ON AFRICAN COLONIZATION

Transcriber's Notes:

This eBook is based on a 1968 reprint by Arno Press, New York, of the original edition, published in 1832 by Garrison and Knapp, Boston. The Table of Contents has been added by the transcriber.

Inconsistent use of "Mr." and "Mr"; use of variable numbers of asterisks as ellipses; irregular and archaic spelling other than noted below; inconsistent capitalization (especially Christian vs. christian) and hyphenation, are as per the original.

2 blank lines between sequential block quotes indicate a new quote; 1 blank line indicates a new paragraph in the same quote; this is similar to the typesetting of the original.

Footnotes have been re indexed sequentially, using letters where symbols were used and numbers where numbers were used in the original, and moved to the end of each section to preserve the flow of the text.

Minor punctuation errors, in particular inconsistent use of quotation marks, have been corrected without note. The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Part I. P. 25 "... was held, at which King George, ..." (had "Kings"). P. 36 "... Lander, travellers in Africa, represent ..." (had "Afria"). P. 48 "... operations have been confined to ..." (had "confied"). P. 88 "... superintendence of any government ..." (had "goverment"). P. 89 "... such a measure, to point ..." (had "a a"). P. 97 "... rid ourselves of a large party ..." (had "lage"). Footnote [P] "... the authority which compels ..." (had "which which"). P. 126 "... country, of an anomalous race ..." (had "amomalous"). P. 127 "... transportation of the manumitted ..." (had "transportion"). P. 148 "... that a greater benefit may be ..." (had "may may").

Part II. P. 72 "... a state far to the West ..." (had "far to far"). P. 72 "... calculated to impress upon ..." (had "calulated").
