Notes

"It is due to the respectable citizens of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Hudson, Newark, and New-Brunswick, to notice, that the sermon, at the direction of the board, was, with slight alterations, preached in all those places, and collections taken up for the benefit of the African School."--verso of title page.

"Notes," including "Distinguished Africans and mulattoes now living in the United States" and "An account of the African School," p. [37]-72.

"Postscript. The sermon has been so long delayed in the press, that I have an opportunity to subjoin a notice of the African Society of Newark."--p. 73-76.

Includes bibliographical references.

Microform version available in the Readex Early American Imprints series.
