the entire white is better than a mixture.  The aversion to change is 

equal in both, and as ladies are plentiful among both parties, both 

having an abundance of their own, there will be no room for quarrel 

about wives. -- The alarm about amalgamation has no foun-

dation in nature, in reason, or in common sense.  There is not one 

good reason why the black man should not enjoy perfect equality 

with the white in civil rights.  This does not require white people 

either to eat, sleep, walk, or intermarry with those that are black.  

All these are matters of private intercourse, and of personal choise, 

and do not interfere with civil equality.  And the bringing of these things 

into the present controversy against abolition only shows the want of better 

arguments.  It is painful to see men of talents bringing such pitiful 

considerations into competition with the liberties of more than two 

millions of human beings.  If the above statements are correct 

the Colonization Society answers no valuable purpose in removing from 

the country the free people of color.
