If I talk a great deal of slavery, it is because I have seen a great deal of it. If I say no good thing of it, it is because I found no good thing in it. I learned to pity the slaveholder and the slave, and to thank God and the genius of the age for the Proclamation.
I have to express my warmest gratitude to Gen. Banks, who kindly allowed me every privilege in my work of investigation, and to whom we are indebted for the successful operation Of the free labor system in the Gulf Department. Let all honor be given to an honorable man.
As my people said to me when I left them, so say I to my book, God speed you!
