Excerpt from The Suppressed Book About Slavery: Prepared for Publication in 1857, Never Published Until the Present Time

The people of the United States are a Slave-holding people. How much that term means we learn when we better understand what Slavery is, and what is the complicity of the people of the "free States" with it.

In the original draft of the Declaration of Independence one of the oppressive acts charged against the Mother country was the continuation of the Foreign Slave Trade, contrary to the interests and in spite of the remonstrances of the Colonists. It was afterwards omitted, at the dictate of those Southern Colonies who could not consistently complain of that as a wrong which they meant to claim as a privilege. When, at the close of the war, a Convention of Delegates from all the States met to form a Constitution, the two questions which threatened to be insurmountable obstacles in the way of a Federal Union were, whether the system of Slavery, which was cherished in some of the States, should be tolerated by those which had abolished or proposed to abolish it; and whether the traffic in African Slaves should be continued. The difficulty was evaded by a "Compromise." The Foreign Slave Trade was permitted, but only for twenty years. The rendition of fugitive Slaves was provided for by the Constitution, because they were "property;" but the Slaves were reckoned as three-fifths of the free population, as a basis of Congressional representation, because they were men. On the other hand, in case of direct taxation the same method of enumeration was observed. On the side of the Slaveholder was not only power, but "wisdom." The Foreign Slave Trade lasted as long as it was wanted, and till a more profitable Domestic Trade was about to arise to take its place.
