About this Item

In the late 1820s, a certain Lieutenant Brady of the British Royal Navy came to visit his brother on the island of St. Croix in the then Danish West Indies. During his previous travels around the West Indies, the question of slavery had left an enduring mark on him. On St. Croix, he lived on a sugar-producing plantation and was surrounded by an enslaved population there. He began to draw correlations between the conditions in the British colonies and those on Danish St. Croix. In response, he created a pamphlet written with two objects in mind which, in his own words, included: the forwarding of the emancipation of the slaves, by the temperate and judicious improvement of their physical and moral condition and, secondly, endeavouring to allay that bitter feeling of hostility, which is too apparent between the colonists and the advocates for emancipation. This edited version of a primary source is essential to any inquiry into the slave trade in the Danish West Indies. , English, Year1996, Illust. B/W, Illust. Color, ISBN 09166111715, Code 3788.
