AN ESSAY COMPARATIVE COST FREE AND SLAVE LABOUR, Fouche', Napoleon's arch-minister ofpolice, is reported to have remarked respecting the murder of the Duke D'En- ghien, that it was worse than a crime: it was a blunder.
Z THE COMPARATIVE COST holding men in slavery, is worse than a crime; it is ablun- der not merely a wrong, but the most disgraceful of mis- ; takes, a blunder in arithmetic. Should we succeed in making good our position, that slave-holding is as unprofit- able as it is criminal, as costly as it is unjust; if we can prove that, in this as in all other instances, doing right is, — in the long run, cheaper than doing wrong; we shall have demonstrated to the satisfaction of even the West India Planters themselves, that slavery ought to be immediately abolished.
