5. A Southern Lady [Mrs. Henry Rowe Schoolcraft], Letters on the Condition of the African Race in the United States (Philadelphia: T. K. & P. G. Collins, 1852). (34 p.)

Favorable description of the living conditions of slaves in the South as compared to the plight of Northern laborers who are not able to benefit, as do the slaves, from the paternalism of kind slave owners. There are four letters in the pamphlet, the first dated September 15, 1851, the last November 20, 1851.
