23. Ulrich Bonnell Phillips, “The Slave Labor Problem in the Charleston District,” Political Science Quarterly 22 (No. 3, 1907): 416-39 (reprint, Boston: Ginn & Co., 1907).

Analysis of slavery in the district lying between Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia. The author focuses on the slave-holders’ social and physical control of the slave population. The article contains five tables, including one that provides prices obtained for prime field hands every year from 1800 to 1860 compared to slave prices in middle George. Mr. Stone has filled the margins on page 424 with handwritten notes. (There is another copy of this reprint in volume 93 [no. 32].)
