ANON. EMANCIPATION OF THE NEGRO SLAVES IN THE WEST INDIA COLONIES CONSIDERED, with reference to its impolicy and injustice: in answer to Mr Wilberforce's Appeal. No. 1. £ 300.00

By the Author of 'A Statement of the Claims of the West Indai Colonies to a protecting duty against East Indai Sugar'. London. Whitmore and Fenn. 1824. pp. (iv), 44. 8vo. Disbound. All published. Fly title entitled The Impolicy and Injustice of Emancipating the Negro Slaves in the West India Colonies. All published. Ragatz p426 & 432. Argues that 'Wilberforce and his followers in Parliament were not the type of men fitted to discuss the delicate and intricate subject of emancipation. They were unenlightened and passionate philanthropists and had, for the most part, withdrawn from the Established Church'. & ' The freeing of the blacks by Parliament would constitute unjust exercise of power on its part over inferior by legally constituted authorities. Every Englishman's property was undeniably secured to him by Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights. The King, who had sworn to observe them, could not allow the West Indians to be divested of their immunities and estates. Emancipation would result in the establishment of anegro empire.'
