Riassunto: The following pages record the results of missionary enterprise among the African slaves of the Southern states. From the earliest records available, the editor has obtained the narrative of the operations of various Christian Churches, including Baptists, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians. The chief authority for this narrative was kindly forwarded to me by the Hon. Richard H. Clark, a gentleman who honors the judicial office in the city of A tlanta, Ga. To Miss Annie Maria Barnes is due the credit of collecting the materials of this volume from contemporary sources. The work of the editor has been confined to selection, abbreviation, and arrangement of these materials. When no authority is given for a statement in the text, the editor is responsible. That the general public will be surprised to learn some of the facts recorded in these pages the editor is firmly persuaded. Who among us realizes the fact that the people of the South expended nearly or quite tivo millions of dollars for the evangelization of the slaves on the cotton and rice plantations between the years 1S29 and 1864. This amount does not express the total sum expended by Southern slave holders for the benefit of the negro slaves. Plantation missions are alone represented, and these comprised a minority of the slaves in most of the Southern states. Nor do we include the expenditures made by other Christian Churches. The two millions of dollars were contributed bj the slave holders and their friends to forward the missions to the slaves conducted by the Methodist Episcopal Church from 1829 to 1844, and from 1844 to 1864 by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
