Lord GRKNVILLli: then toso to e.vplain the nature of the resolutions which the other lloilsc of Parliamcnthad'come to, respecting the Aboli-tioii of the Skve Trade, arid which they had cotn-mnnicated to tluiii" Lordsliips Ifousc for their concurrence and acqnicscence. The resolutions: sLatcd, that the Slave Trade was unjust, inhnnian, and impolitic, and the inference fmu these premises was, that the Slave Trade, sliould be abolished, in uuch mantier, and at'emch period, as Parliament should deem a'dvj^eabie. The premises stood in no needy of proof, and whatf'proofs might be advanced in snpjpoftof tbetn^ coHldnow-haycbut UttJe novelty;. neither did' tJiey pledge their � liordsltips to any -new deternnnatioii. Could that thins be just which ; deprived jnea of their best rights, without any right atall on the part of "those wlio disquieted them, to-interfere with, or annoy then) in any sort? Such, however, were oiir intcrfcrouce and annoyance of the inhabitants of tiie coast of Africa. Could that thing be humane Avhlch tended to tea? asunder all the , b'onds by which the: societies of men were held together ; which violated all the dearest charities of human life ; %vhich tore children from their parents, bi'otliers from sisters, husbatids from wives ; aind w-lio, by forcing men from tlteir native hoines, tore tlioni away from every thing w^.hich thej' held valuable and de-ar ? If, therefore;, (as no^ man woulji venture to .deriy.), the Slave Trade was  evidently uiijust arid irthaman, would it not -be a ;waste of their Jjordships time, and an, insult to to be tfieir uridcrstandirig,: to eritcr into any proofs shew it was iiupolitiB? If, therefore, it njnst 1 confessed that ;such a traffic was unjust, inhunian, atid impolitic, \vas not the conclusion obvious, a'fconclusion to .'which thei^ njiitidi ;a,iid'licarts: niust unaToidably yield, � that; sueh a ;traffic shonld"be �put an\ end- to as sapn as' �piii^ssiblei His ;caf6rclag; 'ail' thee tttpics-at great" lori^h, and in a niiitotier! : the most, cloqiieiit and convindiig, cohcloded' ^With^moving^ that the House (do cpw .solntiqris agreed to, and comnntqicafed by iher Gominoiis.'''''^'.''..�  : B# HA^)V^IiK?B^KY eouldWt entirely titi#?
