in the world, except the whites " of all colors " in the United
States, and a few hundreds of colonial slave masters and
slave drivers, is matter of pity and abhorrence. Proud,
unjust and cruel as in other respects they may be, in this,

genial minds, in founding the two settlements in question ?
Need I repeat the character of the founder of Sierra

But who were the founders of Liberia ? Mills, I cannot
take into the account, for he was not a colonizationist, but
a missionary. Finley, must be included ; and highly in¬
teresting as his character seems to have been in other re¬
spects, in this, an independent and impartial mind, need only
mark the first motive which he gives for his colonization
zeal, " we should be cleared of them," to perceive at once,
how deeply he was implicated in his country's wickedness.
Of Caldwell, L am too ignorant to speak. And who were
the rest ? Most, if not all, slave masters! The Virginian
