Página 261 - ... in their own country, it is this very system that perpetuates, if not causes, the unhappy condition with which the comparative comfort of some of them in slavery is contrasted. Ethnologists reckon the African as by no means the lowest of the human family. He is nearly as strong physically as the European, and, as a race, is wonderfully persistent among the nations of the earth...
