7. The Negro: A “Man,” But Not a “Brother.” A Key to the Solution of Our Political Difficulties (Savannah, GA: Morning News Steam-Power Press, 1869). (30 p.)

Essay concerning the issue of racial origins and characteristics based on biblical scholarship. “We do not pretend to say that the Negro is incapable of improvement; on the contrary, we believe he can advance very far toward perfection, as is proved by exceptional cases in his species: but we do most earnestly protest against the sudden transformation of an indiscriminate mass of semi-barbarians into electors, legislators, and conservators of justice, to the exclusion of those whom God and nature made to rule.”
