1911Translated by Ellen E. Frewer. This translation begins: " The "slave-trade" is an expression that ought never to have found its way into any human language. After being long practiced at a large profit by such European nations as had possessions beyond the seas, this abominable traffic has now for many years been ostensibly forbidden; yet even in the enlightenment of this nineteenth century, it is still largely carried on, especially in Central Africa, inasmuch as there are sever states, professedly Christian, whose signatures have never been affixed to the deed of abolition "
