Excerpt from Adelaide Zaire, of Guadaloupe: An Emancipated Negress
Africans should be disposed to distribute copies of each of these small Works, especially that entitled Africa, and her Children, amongst different classes of persons, may they not very materially promote deep sympathy in their favour? May not that sympathy impel persons of the higher classes to render generous aid to Christian Missionary Societies? May not worthy young persons of the middle classes be induced to become teachers amongst the Negroes, and advance civi lization in connexion with Christianity?
This humble narrative of Adelaide Zaire, if put into their hands, will be read, perhaps, with profit and pleasure, by sick persons, by servants, and, - if given as a reward-book, - by children in Sunday-schools. It is now committed to the press, in dependance upon the Divine blessing; and in the hope that many readers will endeavour, like Adelaide Zaire, to adorn the christian faith by christian practice.
