Romaine, B.F. [Benjamin Franklin]

Letter from the Secretary of the Ohio Colonization Society [leaflet]

Ohio Colonization Society, Columbus, OH. 1870, 5x8.5 inch leaflet printed both sides, paper clip rust traces on verso, otherwise very good. OCLC lists one holding at Cornell. Text of a letter to George W. Gregg explaining the continued use of the term "colonization" given the changed conditions since the organization's founding; argues that funding Liberian development is a form of reparation for the debt incurred to Africa by the damages rendered by slavery, and should not be seen as a move to curtail the rights of freed slaves in the US by getting rid of them.
