The fact is,.tbat among the slaves*(the i African race these things are almost t wholly unknown. ' However frequent suicide may have been among those brought from Africa, I can say that in my time I cannot remember to have known o beard cf a single instance of deliberate self-destruction. and but one of suicide at I all. As to insanity, I have seen but one permanent case of it, and that twenty 1 yeate ago. It cannot be doubted that among three millions of people there must I be some insane and some suicides; but 1 will venture to say that more cases of both c occur annually among every hundred i thousand of the populaition of dreat Bri tain than among all our slaves. Can it be possible, then, that they exist in that : state of abject misery, goaded by constant I injuries, outraged in their affections and I worn down with hardships, which the Abolitionists depict, and so many ignorant and thoughtless persons religiously believe?
