A Residence at Sierra Leone free pdf Excerpt from A Residence at Sierra Leone: Described From a Journal Kept on the Spot, and From Letters Written to Friends at Home In offering this little work to the Public, the Author craves indulgence for the trivial matter it contains. It is chiefly compiled from a journal she kept for her own amusement, and a few of her letters to home friends. It might, probably, have been rendered more entertaining by observations and anecdotes connected with the European society of the colony- but it would have been difficult - if not impossible - in a place where the white community is so limited, to have introduced anything of that nature without incurring the imputation of personality. The writer has also avoided touching much on the slave-trade, although a subject in which she has always felt the deepest interest- and not the least at this moment, when so strong a party seems to advocate a total abandonment of those noble efforts which have, for nearly half a century, so highly distinguished Great Britain amongst the nations of Europe. But whilst disclaiming all intention of discussing the merits of a great political question, the Author trusts it may not be deemed either out of place, or presumptuous, if she avail herself of this opportunity to add her voice, however feeble, to the testimony of those who declare that, were the squadron withdrawn from the scene of its gallant exertions in the cause of humanity, the West Coast of Africa would become a den of pirates, who would rapidly sweep away all traces of that civilization which has been effected at the sacrifice of so much British blood and treasure.
