Two pages, 12mo, bifolium (second leaf blank), good condition. I return the Prospectus with your proposed corrections which appear to me very proper. The alteration of the Map [see Note 2 below] will be an improvement as it will give us less the appearance of a branch of the American Society & it would be still better if a sketch of the position of Cape Mount could be substituted for Monrovia. Notes: 1. He was also one of the vice-presidents of the American Colonization Society, whose aim was to repatriate African freedmen in the United States to the African continent. 2. Map of Liberia Colony in the 1830s, created by the ACS (American Colonisation Society, and also showing Mississippi Colony and other state-sponsored colonies.
