The History and Present Condition of St. Domingo, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The History and Present Condition of St. Domingo, Vol. 1 of 2 Having gathered together these materials, I have deemed it not unadvisable to communicate to the public the result of my labors. I was the more inclined to such a step, as but little is accurately known in the United States of the early progress of that brilliant French colony, or of the train of events, all dependent upon each other, which gradually brought on the fierce struggle of the Revolution, terminating in the death or expulsion of the whites, and the emancipation and independence of the blacks. I have confined myself, throughout, to a simple recital of facts, having no system of politics to establish, more than a decided penchant for order, humanity and moral principle.
