* African slave trade
The back page has: "The Slave Trade" which concerns the sale of slaves in Senegal, noting: "...that the trade there, together with all its almost inconceivable horrors, continues to increase...that our government will not cease its importunites with the Ministers of the King of France till a complete end has been put to the existence of this dreadful & disgraceful event in that part of Africa." with more, taking over half a column. Included also is a: "List of Vessels Loaded with Slaves at Senegal...".
Four pages, nice condition.
