The only edition recorded by American Imprints, NUC, the Library Company, Dumond, and Sabin, despite its stated description. "Bacon was a strong colonizationist, and bitter opponent of immediate emancipation. He was equally opposed to slavery and to organized antislavery effort." Dumond 23. In this piece Bacon's loathing of the Garrisonian "fanatics" and their abolitionist ideas comes through loud and clear. "Reader, notice the admirable simplicity of the proposal. The remedy for slavery is, that slavery should cease. How simple and yet how effectual. Certainly this looks like philosophy."
