5. [Morgan Godwyn], Godwyn’s Negro’s [and Indians] Advocate: [Suing for their Admission into the Church] ([London]: n.p., [1680]). (144 p.)

Monograph written by an Anglican cleric in Barbados, who was opposed to the slave trade. The author argues that persons of African descent are as capable as Europeans of "Manly employments, as also of reading and writing." (The title page to this monograph is missing. Someone has written the title, the date, and “Imperfect Copy” on a blank cover sheet.)
