Early American views on Negro slavery : from the letters and papers of the founders of the Republic by Matthew T Mellon( Book )

21 editions published between 1934 and 1969 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction: Mr. Mellon's illuminating presentation of the views of some of the founding fathers on slavery and the Negro exposes the raw nerve of American democratic society.

The colonies were connected to Britain only through the king
