John Parrish, Remarks on the Slavery of the Black People; Addressed to the Citizens of the United States, Particularly to Those Who Are in Legislative or Executive Stations in the General or State Governments; and also to Such Individuals as Hold Them in Bondage (Philadelphia: Kimber, Conrad, & Co., 1806). (66 p.)
