An impassioned appeal by Henry Sterne, resident of St. George, Jamaica, in defense of "apprentices" (i.e. newly-freed slaves following the 1834 emancipation in the West Indies) who have suffered mistreatment, citing detailed legal cases and presenting legal and religious arguments: "The iron yoke of slavery (for apprenticeship is equally as bad, if not worse) still reigns. The lash, dungeons and chains are in constant attendance throughout the land, and will remain so, for near four long years to come" (p. vii).
