Slave Trade Sugar West Indian Produce Abstention Popular Campaign Britain
Popular pamphlet encouraging abstention from West Indian sugar, which condensed material from Cooper's Letters on the Slave Trade (1787) and the Address to the People of Great Britain, on the Consumption of West-India Produce (1791). It compares the fall of the Bastille with the abolition of the slave trade: "Multitudes rejoiced when the Bastille fell, yet how small the number there confined, how trifling the tortures there inflicted, when compared with the numbers and sufferings of the slaves" (15).
