The speaker addressed the issues of slave trading and "slave raising," and stressed that the acceptance of these had been passed down from generation to generation. As a mulatto, he believed he offered a type of bridge between races. He related a story of the kindness shown to him in Massachusetts that he hadn't known before, but stressed that this bit of kindness had not stopped him from working to end slavery.
