|Contents:||"This pamphlet contains the result of inquiries and observations made during the investigation. At any time but this, an apology might be necessary for putting forth, in such a hasty and crude form, the observations and speculations which it contains. But now, when every body is asking what shall be done with the negroes, --
and many are afraid that they cannot take care of themselves if left alone, --
an account of the manner in which twenty thousand are taking care of themselves in Canada, may be interesting, even if it be imperfect, and contain superflous speculations" --
