24. William Mathews, “The Negro Intellect,” North American Review (July 1889): 91-102.

Defense of African American intelligence. “The facts we have cited show that the intellectual and moral chasm which separates almost every nation of Europe from its remote ancestors is fully as great as a that which separates the negro to-day from many a nation of whites. They show, too, how absurd it is to measure his mental capability, or that of any other semi-savage man, till his intellect has been developed as fully as possible by culture.” (The collection has another copy of this article in volume 20 [no. 29].)
