A Discourse, on the Moral, Legal and Domestic Condition of Our Colored Population. Preached Before the Vermont Colonization Society, at Montpelier, October 17, 1832
32 pages. A speech by the pastor of the Calvanist Congregational Church, in Burlington, Vermont, to a state chapter of the American Colonization Society (ACS). The ACS founded the colony of Liberia, in Africa, and sought to encourage free blacks in the United States to return to Africa. In this lecture, Converse argues that colonization would 'free this country from the unnumbered evils of a colored population, and thus avert the danger of a dreadful collision between two castes which must inevitably be objects of mutual jealousy to each other' (p. 23, but similar sentiments are recorded throughout). First edition (first printing). Very good in the original printed wrappers. Faint blue stamp on title page. Bookseller Inventory # 129232
