Early commons on life in America... More buffalo than men...



Item # 638453

March 15, 1764

THE LONDON CHRONICLE, England, March 15, 1764  Inside has half a page review of a book: "An Essay in Vindication of the Continental Colonies of America, from a Censure of Mr. Adam Smith in his 'Theory of Moral Sentiments' With some Reflections on Slavery in General". It begins: "The passage in Mr. Smith's book, which has given offence to this American, is as follows:  There is not a negroe from the coast of Africa who does not...possess a degree of magnanimity which the soul of his sordid master is scarce capable of conceiving..." with more thoughts on slavery. Also an interesting item: "...In that part of America which we speak of the bisons (an animal resembling our ox) are perhaps more numerous than the men..." with more (see).
Eight pages, 8 by 11 inches, very nice condition.
