Excerpt from The History of the Rise, Progress, and Accomplishment of the Abolition of the African Slave-Trade, by the British Parliament, Vol. 1 of 3
To value the blessing of the abolition as we ought, or to appreciate the joy and gratitude which we ought to feel concerning it, we must enter' a little into the circumstances of the trade. Our statement, however, of these needs not be long. A few pages will do all that is necessary! A glance only into such a subject as this will be sufficient to affect the heart; to arouse 'our indignation and our pity; and to teach us the importance of the victory obtained.
