Those Laws Which Still Prevent Free Commercial Intercourse Among The Civilized Nations Seem To Be Nothing Else But The Remains

Of our own heathenism. My observations on this subject make me extremely desirous to promote the preparation of the raw

Materials of European manufactures in Africa, for by that means we may not only put a stop to the slave-trade, but introduce the negro family into the body corporate of nations, no one member of which can suffer without the others suffering with it. Success in this, in both Eastern and Western Africa, would lead, in the course of time, to a much larger diffusion of the blessings of civilization than efforts exclusively spiritual and educational confined to any one small tribe. These, however, it would of course be extremely desirable to carry on at the same time at large central and healthy stations, for neither civilization nor Christianity can be promoted alone. In fact, they are inseparable.
