The scope of this little work is confined to the Trade in
Negro Slaves between the Dominion of Zanzibar, on the East
Coast of Africa, and the Arabian and Persian shores.
There are branches of the Slave Trade passing into Eo-ypt
and from the interior of Africa to the borders of the
Mediterranean. Until Egypt, Turkey, Arabia, and Persia
abandon domestic slavery, or, in other words, abandon
luonammedanism, tins trado will continuG.
Over these countries England can exercise none but a
moral influence, and to attempt or suggest any stronger, in
connection with the etfort to put down the Zanzibar trade, will
only add embarrassment to the difficulty of the task which lies
before us. That task is the suppression of the Slave Trade
described in these pages.
This is no quixotic undertaking, it lies in our path of duty,
and is within our grasp. '
The determination of the English Government to suppress
the trade has been nobly stated by Lord Palmerston , and a fain
by Lord Granville , in his dispatch to the Sultan of Zanzibar.
Public opinion has only to be informed as to the facts, in order
to secure a hearty support to the Government in carrvino- out
I am indebted to the kindness of Mr. Murray , for permission
to quote from " The Zambesi," and the " Quarterly Review"
and to Mr. J. Cooper , for the quotation from his translation of
Prof. Berlioux's work, " La Traite Orientale."
I would take this opportunity of ackowledging the en
couragement and kindness which I have received in the pre
paration of this little work from the Baroness B urdett -Coutts
who has added to her many labours in behalf of suffering
creation, efforts for the suppression of the East African Slave
