32. A Citizen of the South, Is Slavery a Blessing? A Reply to Prof. Bledsoe’s Essay on Liberty and Slavery: With Remarks on Slavery as It Is (Boston: John P. Jewett, 1857). (120 p.)

Monograph that takes exception with Professor Bledsoe’s assertion that slavery is a blessing. (Bledsoe’s anti-abolitionist argument was based on Biblical texts.) The writer warns Southerners that they will instigate a civil war if they fail to take steps to end slavery on their own.
