11. U.S. House, Select Committee, Slave Trade, 21st Cong., 1st Sess., House Rep. 348 [April 7, 1830]. (286 p.)

Report and documents regarding the African slave trade. Among other recommendations, such as encouragement of colonization of free African Americans in Africa, the select committee states that “The Government of the United States is not only empowered, but bound, by every consideration of expediency, as regards its immediate constituents; of humanity, as respects another continent; and of fidelity to the obligations of an existing treaty, to abolish, if possible, a traffic which has long been denounced, in vain, by its laws.”
