16. William G. T. Shedd, Africa and Colonization: An Address Delivered before the Massachusetts Colonization Society, May 27, 1857 (Andover, MA: Warren F. Draper, 1857). (24 p.)

Optimistic review of the progress in colonizing free men and women of color in Liberia. “The other continents have had their hour of deliverance,” the speaker concludes. “The hour for Africa has now, for the first time, come. Her scores of races prove to have capacities for Christianity and self-government. The American emancipationist is ready and waiting to send out, among them, hundreds of thousands of Americanized colonists.”
