sooner in another way, at less than half the expense of life and money.  

The money already expended in colonization would in the hands of the Amer-

ican Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, likely have been suf-

ficient for the whole work.  But Africa is yet to be evangelized; and 

we can scarcely say that the work is begun, though the sacrifice 

of life and money has already been equal to what would be reason-

ably required for the whole work.  It may be added that it is a 

matter of serious doubt whether the Society may not become one of 

the strongest obstacles in the way of evangelizing Africa.  It will 

be the means of giving the natives greater intercourse with profligate 

and wicked men called Christians, and thus everywhere forms one 

of the strongest barriers to the access of the Missionaries.

     Further, it may be said that it will prevent the slavetrade.  

To this it may be answered that the colonists will prove themselves 

better than the white men of this country if some of them do not give 

more aid to the slave trade than the rest can give to preventing it.  

The best way to abolish the slave trade is to abolish slavery 

and have no slave market.
