remark upon the unfortunate social and political
condition of the free people of color both in the

persons will exhibit or read to them.
. Wo have ono copy of the circular, which is
at tho scrvico of anybody who wants it. The
following extracts will prove that, compared
with what they might be, their condition in this
country is extremely unfortunuto:
