Summary
Written in two parts, the first essay contains four major points: slavery received the sanction of God in the time of the Patriarchs, slavery was part of the only commonwealth established by God, slavery is recognized by Christ as legitimate, and slavery is full of mercy. The second part uses the census of 1850 to make material claims for the expediency of slavery. He compares the six New England states with the five Atlantic coast slave states and uses the statistical data to assert that the Southern states are superior in religious life, and in general prosperity and population growth for whites, slaves, and free blacks. He claims that slavery was forced upon the South by the Northern states, but because the South has thrived, it has turned out to be not a curse but a blessing
