Page 4 has an article headed: "Revival of the African Slave Trade in the Southern States". the article includes: "Some of our n****r worshiping contemporaries have started off upon a new scent. A bill has been passed by the Louisiana House...authorizing the importation into that state of voluntary negro apprentices to labor for a term of years & this scheme is denounced by our anti-slavery philosopher as the revival of the African slave trade. But it is no such thing..." with much more, taking nearly half a column.
