There is much emphasis on the Negro, as well as a 60-page appendix on the American Indian entitled "Of the Natural Bravery and Fortitude of the American Indians--or The History of their Manners as it relates to their Military Expeditions, and their Conduct to those who are Taken Captive in War." The first edition was published in Philadelphia in 1787. See Felcone, New Jersey Books, 1297. Bookseller Inventory # 3209
