An Eflay on Slavery
Designed to exhibit in a new point of view,
its effects on morals, indujlry, and the peace of
ociety. Some tacts and calculations are offered
to prove the labor of freemen to be much more
produQive than that ot Jlaves ; that countries are
rich, powerful and happy, in proportion as the
laboring people enjoy the fruits of their own
labor ; and hence the n ceflaiy conclusion, that
flavcry is impolitic as well -s unjujl.
