Excerpt from The Refugees: A Sequel to Uncle Tom's Cabin

I write this to show what a parallel case Mr. Kennan could find in his own country, where a refined cultivated people were thrown down in extreme poverty in the midst of a coarse African race, whom slavery barely res cued from cannibalism.

Charles Dickens, in a letter to Harriet Beecher Stowe, referring to Uncle Tom's Cabin, writes If I might suggest a fault, in what has so charmed me, it would be that you go too far and seek to prove too much. I doubt there being any warrant for making out the African race to be a great race, or for supposing the future destinies of the world to be in that direction.
