37. A View of Exertions Lately Made for the Purpose of Colonizing the Free People of Colour, in the United States, in Africa, or Elsewhere (Washington, DC: Jonathan Elliot, 1817). (22 p.)

Reasons for colonizing free men and women of color with an assessment of its practicability. The author takes the location, the expense, and the probability of obtaining the consent of those persons to be colonized into account. The pamphlet concludes with a favorable report of the experience of thirty colonists who were recently settled in the British colony at Sierra Leone. (The collection has another copy of this pamphlet in volume 70 [22].)
