MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, COMMUNICATING, IN COMPLIANCE WITH A RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE, THE CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN MR. SCHENCK, UNITED STATES MINISTER TO BRAZIL, AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE, IN RELATION TO THE AFRICAN SLAVE TRADE. MARCH 13, 1854.

1854. 33d Cong., 1st Sess. SED47. [Washington: 1854]. 14, [2 blank] pp, disbound, spine reinforced with paper tape. Light water stain running through text, else Very Good. Schenk reports on Brazil's active encouragement of and participation in the African slave trade. Despite British efforts to stamp out this traffic, "secret depots" of the trade along the African coast are among the "indications of its revival." The revival is spurred by the rising prices of slaves, caused in large part by the obstacles that British enforcement has created. OCLC 33203263 [1-Tulane Univ.]. Item #23969
