Excerpt from Foreign Slave Trade: Abstract of the Information Recently Laid on the Table of the House of Commons on the Subject of the Slave Trade; Being a Report Made by a Committee Specially Appointed for the Purpose, to the Directors of the African Institution on the 8th of May, 1821
The Committee feel that it will be impossible for auv member of the African Institution to peruse these docu ments without strong emotions. They exhibit, on the part of our Government, a perpetual and painful struggle against the apathy and negligence (to use the very mildest terms of which the case will admit) of those whom it has been urging, almost without intermission, but hitherto almost in vain, to perform their solemn contracts, to redeem their repeated pledges, and to act up to their public declarations.
