Description - The West Indies by Edward Bean Underhill
Excerpt from The West Indies: Their Social and Religious Condition It is necessary, however, to remind my readers that the question to be determined, is not whether the enfranchised people of our West Indian Colonies have reached the platform of civilization and wealth occupied by the nations of Europe; but whether they have used well the twenty-three years Of freedom they have enjoyed, and won such a position, in that short period of time in the life of a nation, as may fairly be expected of a race emerging from a cruel and debasing bondage. In my judgment, the answer must be given most em phatically in the affirmative. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
