18. John F. Foard, North America and Africa: Their Past, Present and Future and Key to the Negro Problem, 3rd ed. (N.p., 1904). (67 p.)

Monograph advocating the colonization of African Americans in Liberia and also containing a miscellany of material on racial topics. A photograph of the author serves as a frontispiece, and a photograph of a Confederate veteran shaking hands with a Union veteran, the former with his leg amputated below the knee and the latter without an arm, appears on page 60. The author presents a biographical sketch of an African Prince sold into slavery and brought to the United States. A photograph of the Prince, known to the author as Uncle Moro, appears on page 67. A facsimile holograph of the 23rd Psalm written in Arabic by Uncle Moro is opposite the page bearing the photograph.
