Gallandat, who mentions him in the Memoirs of the
Academy of Flessinque, of which he was a member. Amo,
at that time about fifty years of age, led there the life of a
recluse. His father and a sister were living with him, and
he had a brother who was a slave in Surinam. Some time
after, it appears, he left Axim and settled at Chama.
The Abbe Gregoire, from whose work the foregoing par¬
ticulars are translated, says that he made unavailing
researches to ascertain whether Amo published any other
works, or at what period he died.
This sketch was taken from the work entitled 'A Tribute
for the Negro,' published in 18.48, by Armistead.
