Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The African Repository, and Colonial Journal, Vol. 7: August, 1831

After the close of our revolutionary war, many negroes who ¿ed from their masters, and sought protection with the British armies during its progress, were scattered through the Bahama Islands, and Nova Scotia. Others had found their way to England. In 1787, a private company in England sent 400 of them, with their own consent, to Sierra Leone, on the western coast of Africa About five years afterwards, twelve hun dred of those from Nova Scotia were transported to Sierra Leone, by the British government. The Maroons, from Jamaica, were removed thither in 1805. The hostility of the French, the opposition of the Nao tivcs, the selection ofa situation which proved to be unfortunate in many local particulars, and perhaps more than either, the heterogeneous mate rials of which that settlement was composed, for some years, retarded its growth. All these difficulties, however, have been surmounted. That colony contains more than twenty thousand souls, of whom more than three-fourths are re-captured Afrimns, whose rapacious owners had des tined them for foreign bondage. 'l'owns are reared up, churches and schools established, agriculture has become a settled pursuit, and society has put on a regular and stable appearance.
