of Africa. View him necessarily destitute
of every mena of improvement in social
virtue, of every advantage for the cultivation
of these principles of humanity, in which
alone consists the dignity of the rational

whereby the human species is distinguish
ed from other parts of the animal creation.

an eternal existence, view him as necessa
rily ignorant of every principle of that
