quoting the description of the Congo basin from Henry M Stanley concluded that that would be the best location for the American negroes as by their efforts civilization would be moro rapidly promoted iu Africa than through any efforts of the whites Morgan mamtimed that Central Africa seemed destined for tho future conquests of civiliza tion and complimented tho efforts of tho king of Bulgium in
