Moses Seixas petition to Abraham Lincoln
By Walter White Jr., 1968
The story of the slaves in America begins with Christopher Columbus. His voyage to America was not financed by Queen
Isabella, but by Luis de Santangelo, who advanced the sum of 17,000 ducats
(about 5,000 pounds-today equal to 50,000 pounds) to finance the voyage,
which began on August 3, 1492.
Columbus was accompanied by five 'maranos' (Jews who had foresworn
their religion and supposedly became Catholics), Luis de Torres,
interpreter, Marco, the surgeon, Bemal, the physician, Alonzo de la Calle
and Gabriel Sanchez ( Ref. The International Jew by Henry Ford ).
Gabriel Sanchez, abetted by the other four Jews, sold Columbus on the
idea of capturing 500 Indians and selling them as slaves in Seville,
Spain, which was done. Columbus did not receive any of the money from the
sale of the slaves, but he became the victim of a conspiracy fostered by
Bemal, the ship's doctor. He, Columbus, suffered injustice and
imprisonment as his reward. Betrayed by the five maranos (Jews) whom he
had trusted and helped. This, ironically, was the beginning of slavery in
the Americas ( Ref. Adventures of an African Slaver by Malcolm Cowley, 1928, p.11 ).
The Jews were expelled from Spain on August
2, 1492, and from Portugal in 1497. Many of these Jews emigrated to
Holland, where they set up the Dutch West Indies Company to exploit the
In 1654, the first Jew, Jacob Barsimson, emigrated from Holland to New
Amsterdam (New York) and in the next decade many more followed him,
settling along the East Coast, principally in New Amsterdam and Newport,
Rhode Island. They were prevented by ordinances issued by Governor Peter
Stuyvesant from engaging in the domestic economy, so they quickly
discovered that the territory inhabited by the Indians would be a fertile
field. There were no laws preventing the Jews from trading with the
The first Jew to begin trading with the Indians was Hayman Levy, who
imported cheap glass beads, textiles, earrings, armbands and other cheap
adornments from Holland which were traded for valuable fur pelts. Hayman
Levy was soon joined by Jews Nicholas Lowe and Joseph Simon. Lowe
conceived the idea of trading rum and whiskey to the Indians and set up a
distillery in Newport, where these two liquors were produced. Within a
short time there were 22 distilleries in Newport, all of them owned by
Jews, manufacturing and distributing 'firewater.' The story of the
debauching of the Indians with its resultant massacres of the early
settlers, is a dramatic story in itself.
It is essential to comprehend the seaport of Newport. It is important
in order to recognize the Jew share in the Slave commerce. There was a
period when it was commonly referred to as 'The Jew Newport-World center
of Slave Commerce.' All together, at this time, there were in North
America six Jew communities: Newport, Charleston, New York, Philadelphia,
Richmond, and Savanuah. There were also many other Jews, scattered over
the entire East Coast. Although New York held first place in the settlers
of Jews in North America, Newport held second place.
New York was also the main source of Kosher meat, supplying the North
American settlements, then the West Indies and also South America. Now
Newport took over! Newport also became the great trade harbour of the East
Coast of North America. There, vessels from other ports met, to exchange
commodities. Newport, as previously mentioned, represented the foremost
place in the commerce of rum, whiskey, and liquor dealings. And to
conclude, it finally became the Main Center of Slave dealings. It was from
this port that the ships left on their way across the ocean, to gather
their black human cargo and then derive great sums of money in exchange
An authentic, contemporary report, based on authority, indicates that
of 128 Slave ships, for instance, unloaded in Charleston, within one year,
their "Cargo," 120 of these were undersigned by Jews from Newport and
Charleston by their own name. About the rest of them, one can surmise,
although they were entered as Boston (1), Norfolk (2), and Baltimore (4),
their real owners were similarly the Jewish slave dealers from Newport and
One is able to assess the Jewish share in the entire dealings of the
Newport, if one considers the undertaking of a lone Jew, the Portuguese,
Aaron Lopez, who plays an important part in the over-all story of the Jews
Concerning the entire commerce of the Colonies, and the later State of Rhode Island,
(which included Newport) bills of lading, concessions, receipts, and port
clearances carried the signature name of the Jew Aaron Lopez. This all took place during the years 1726 to
1774. He had therefore more than 50% of all dealings under his personal
control for almost fifty years. Aside from that there were other ships
which he owned, but sailed under other names.
Aaron Lopez and his family arrived in Newport around 1750 from New York via Lisbon, Portugal. Lopez arrived in the new
world as a member of a "Marrano" family with the Christian name of
"Don Duarte Lopez." Lopez immediately dropped his Christian name and took the
Hebrew name of Aaron and submitted to ritual circumcision. Within twenty
years, Lopez owned or had interests in over 80 sailing vessels. Lopez
was also one of the original founders and contributors of Touro
Synagogue and by the end of his life was recognized as one of the
"Merchant Princes" of early America. His merchant trading interests
included rum, molasses, dry goods and African slaves.
In the year 1749, the first Masonic Lodge was established. Ninety
percent of the members of this first lodge, fourteen all told, were Jews.
And one knows that only so-called "prominent" individuals were accepted.
Twenty years later, the second Masonic Lodge, "King David," was
established. It is a fact that all of it's members were Jews.
In the meantime, the Jew influence in Newport had reached such
proportions that President George Washington decided to pay them a visit.
Upon his appearance, both of the Masonic Lodges sent an emissary a Jew
named Moses Seixas to approach the President with a petition,
in which the Jews of Newport stated: "If you will permit the children of Abraham to approach you with a request, to tell you that we honor you, and feel an alliance......" and then:
"Until the present time the valuable rights of a free citizen have been withheld. However, now we see a new government coming into being based on the Majesty of the people, a government, not sanctioning any bigotry nor persecution of the Jew, rather, to concede the freedom of thought, which each shares, whatever Nation or Language, as a part of the great Government machine."
Moses Levy and the Moses Seixas families both
lived in one of Newport's large colonial mansions at 29 Touro Street.
Seixas was a founding member of the nation's oldest Jewish Masonic Lodge
(King David in Newport) and Grand Master of the Masonic Order of Rhode
Island. Seixas was well known as the Cashier of the Bank of Rhode
Island. President (Parnas) of Touro Synagogue at the time of the George
Washington visit and letter to the congregation, Seixas also performed
the Covenant of Circumcision (Brith Milah). Prominent merchant and
trader Moses Levy of New York and Newport was one of several Ashkenazi
Jewish families in Newport at that time. Levy owned the Touro Street
Mansion and willed the property to Moses Seixas in 1792.
It is necessary at this point to consider the disclosures as to who in
reality obtained this legendary freedom in America at the founding of the
Union. To be sure, the province became independent and severed from the
English Jurisdiction. However, we can see from the petition which Moses Seixas offered President
Washington in the name of the Jews of Newport, that it was not in reality
this type of freedom which they had in mind. They were merely concerned
about themselves, and their "own civil rights," which had been withheld.
Therefore, following the Revolutionary War, the Jews were accorded equal
rights, and freed of all restrictions! And the Negroes? The Revolutionary
War not withstanding, they remained Slaves! In the year 1750, one sixth of
the population in New York was Negroid, and proportionately in the
Southern parts of the Country, they outnumbered the others, but the
proclamation of Freedom did not touch them. More of this later.
The petition text:
"Sir: Permit the children of the stock of Abraham to approach you with the most cordial affection and esteem for your person and merit, and to join with our fellow-citizens in welcoming you to Newport. ...
Deprived as we hitherto have been of the invaluable rights of free citizens, we now-with a deep sense of gratitude to the Almighty Disposer of all events behold a government erected by the majesty of the people-a government which to bigotry gives no sanction, to persecution no assistance, but generously affording to all liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship, deeming every one of whatever nation, tongue, or language, equal parts of the great governmental machine.
This so ample and extensive Federal Union, whose base is philanthropy, mutual confidence and public virtue, we cannot but acknowledge to be the work of the great God, who rules in the armies of the heavens and among the inhabitants of the earth, doing whatever seemeth to Him good.
For all the blessings of civil and religious liberty which we enjoy under an equal and benign administration, we desire to send up our thanks to the Ancient of days, the great Preserver of men, beseeching Him that the angels who conducted our forefathers through the wilderness into the promised land may graciously conduct you through all the difficulties and dangers of this mortal life; and when, like Joshua, full of days and full of honors, you are gathered to your fathers, may you be admitted into the heavenly paradise to partake of the water of life and the tree of immortality.
Done and signed by order of the Hebrew Congregation in Newport,
Rhode Island, August 17, 1790.
Moses Seixas, Warden"
Let us scrutinize at close range this dismal handwork of the Jews which
gave them influence and power, so we may comprehend the Slave Trade; for
there has been so much written since that time by the zealous Jewish
writers, that at the present, long since removed, it might appear natural,
for the time element has a tendency to make things nebulous.
Let us follow the journey of one ship, owned by a slave dealer, Aaron
Lopez, which had made many trips to the African coast.
For instance, in the month of May, 1752, the ship "Abigail" was
equipped with about 9,000 gallons of rum, a great supply of iron foot and
hand restraints, pistols, powder, sabres, and a lot of worthless tin
ornaments, and under the command of the Jewish Captain Freedman, sailed
off for Africa. There were but two Mates and six sailors comprising the
crew. Three and one half months later they landed on the African Coast.
Meantime, there had been constructed an African Agency, by the Jew slave
dealers, who had corralled them, and prepared them for sale. This
organization reaching deep into Africa, had many ramifications, including
the heads of groups, villages, etc. This method to win over these leaders
for the Jewish slave trade, was similar to' that which the Jews had
employed with the Indians.
At first, they presented them with rum, and soon found themselves in an
alcoholic delirium. When the gold dust, and ivory supply was exhausted,
they were induced to sell their descendants. At first their wives, and
then their youths. Then they began warfare among each other, plotted and
developed mostly by the Jews, and if they captured prisoners, these, too,
were exchanged for rum, ammunitions and weapons to the Jews', using them
for further campaigns to capture more Negroes. The captured Blacks were
linked two by two and driven through the medieval forests to the coast.
These painful treks required weeks, and some of them frequently became
ill, and felled by exhaustion, and many unable to rise even though the
bull whip was applied as an encourager. They were left to die and were
devoured by wild beasts. It was not unusual to see the bones of the dead
laying in the tropical sun, a sad and gruesome reminder to those who would
later on tread this path.
It has been calculated that for each Negro who withstood the rigors of
this wandering, there still had to be the long voyage across the ocean,
before they reached American soil, nine out of ten died! And when one
considers that there was a yearly exodus of ONE MILLION black slaves,
then, and only then, can one assess the tremendous and extensive exodus of
the African people. At present Africa is thinly populated, not alone due
to the 1,000,000 literally dragged out of huts, but due to the five to
nine million who never reached their destination. Once they reached the
coast, the black slaves were driven together, and restraints were applied
to hold them until the next transport ship docked. The agents many of them
Jews who represented the Chief, then began the deal with the Captain. Each
Negro was personally presented to him. But the captains had learned to
become suspicious. The Black one must move his fingers, arms, legs, and
the entire body to insure that there were not any fractures. Even the
teeth were examined. If a tooth was lacking, it lowered the price. Most of
the Jew agents knew how to treat sick Negroes with chemicals in order to
sell them as sound. Each Negro was valued at about 100 gallons of rum, 100
pounds of gun powder, or in cash between 18 to 20 dollars. The notations
of a captain inform us that on September 5, 1763, one Negro brought as
much as 200 gallons of rum, due to the bidding among the agents, raising
Women under 25 years, pregnant or not, resulted in the same measure, if
they were well and comely. Any over 25 years lost 25%.
And here it should be stated that those Negroes, purchased free at the
African Coast for 20 to 40 dollars, were then resold by the same slave
dealers in America for two thousand dollars.
This gives one an idea how the Jews managed to acquire tremendous
fortunes. Following the bargaining, Captain Freedman paid the bill, either
in merchandise or cash. He also recalled some advice which his Jew
employers gave him as he left Newport for Africa:
"Pour as much water into the rum as you possibly can." In this manner the Negro chiefs were cheated
two times by the Newport Jews!
The next step was to shave the hair from the head of the acquired
slaves. Then they were bound and branded with a hot iron, either on the
back, or the hip, identifying them with their owners. Now the Negro slave
was indeed the property of the Jewish purchaser. If he fled he could be
identified. Following this procedure, there was a farewell celebration.
There were instances when entire families were brought out of the
interior, to the coast, and then separated through the buyer the father
going with one ship, the sons and daughters into another. These "farewell"
celebrations were usually packed with emotion, tears, drama and sadness.
There was little joy, if ever.
The following day the transport began from land to ship. It was managed
by taking four to six Negroes at one time in rowboats to the ship. Of
course the slave dealers were aware of how the Negro loved his homeland
above all else, and could only be induced by great force to leave it. So,
some of the Negroes would leap into the water. But here the overseers were
prepared with sharp dogs and retrieved the fleeing men. Other Negroes
preferred drowning. What came aboard alive was immediately undressed. Here
was another opportunity to jump overboard and reach land and freedom. But
the slave dealers were pitiless and ruthless; they were merely concerned
to get their Black cargo to America with the least loss. Therefore, an
escapee, recaptured, had both of his legs cut off before the eyes of the
remaining Negroes in order to restore "Order."
On board the ship the Negroes were separated into three groups. The men
were placed in one part of the ship. The women into another, whereby the
lusty Captain arranged it so that the youngest, mostly comely Negro women
were accessible to him.
The children remained on deck, covered with a cloth in bad weather. In
this fashion the slave ship proceeded on its journey to America. In the
main, the ships were too small, and not at all suitable to transport
people. They were barely equipped to transport animals, which the Negroes
were likened to. In one space, one meter high (39 inches) these
unfortunate creatures were placed into a horizontal position, pressed
close together. Mostly they were chained together. In this position they
had to remain for three months, until the end of the voyage. Rarely was
there a captain who sympathized with them or evidenced any feelings
whatever for these pitiable creatures. Occasionally they would be taken in
groups to the deck for fresh air, shackled in irons.
Somehow, these Negroes were expendable and endured much. On occasion,
one of them became insane, killing the other one pressed closely to him.
They also had their fingernails closely cut so they could not tear at each
other's flesh. The most horrible battles came about among the men, to
acquire a centimeter or two for a comfortable position. It was then that
the slave overseer stepped in with his bullwhip. The unimaginable,
horrible, human excrement in which these slaves had to endure these trips
is impossible to describe.
In the women's quarters the same conditions prevailed. Women gave birth
to children lying pressed closely together. The younger Negro women were
constantly raped by the captain and the crew resulting, thereby, a new
type of Mulatto as they came to America.
In Virginia, or in any of the other Southern port cities, the slaves
were transferred to the land and immediately sold. A regular auction would
take place, following the method of purchase in Africa. The highest bidder
obtained the "Ware." In many cases due to the indescribable filth some of
the Blacks became ill during the sea voyage from Africa to America. They
became unemployable. In such cases the captain accepted any price. It was
rare to dispose of them for no one wanted to purchase a sick Negro.
Therefore, it is not surprising that the Jew, unethical doctor senses a
new form of revenue. They purchased the sick Negro for a small sum, then
treated him, and sold him for a large sum. On occasion, the captain would
be left with a few Negroes for whom he did not find a buyer. In that case
he returned to Newport and sold them to the Jews for cheap domestic help.
In other cases, the Jew owner of the ships took them over. This is why the
city of Newport and its surroundings had 4,697 black slaves in the year
Slavery did not extend to the North. Moreover, in many of the North
American Colonies, slavery was strictly forbidden. Georgia came under
discussion; likewise also Philadelphia. And again it was the Jews who
managed a loophole, which had given them freedom following the
Revolutionary War, so, they schemed to make slave trading legal.
One had but to read the names of those persons living in Philadelphia
who were requesting the elimination of existing laws regarding the slavery
dealing. They were: the Jews Sandiford, Lay,
Woolman, Solomon, and Benezet.
That explained it all! But let us turn back to the slave ship "Abigail." Its captain and we are
reading from his ship's books did a profitable business. He sold all of
his Negroes in Virginia, invested some of the money in tobacco, rice,
sugar, and cotton, and went on to Newport where he deposited his wares.
We learn from Captain Freedman's books that the "Abigail" was a small
ship and could only accommodate 56 people. He managed, however, to clear
from one trip 6,621 dollars, which he in turn delievered to the owner of
the ship: one Aaron Lopez.
The staggering amounts of money acquired by the Jew ship owners and
slavery dealers is better illustrated when we emphasize the many years in
which this sale and purchase of human flesh was practiced. Prior to 1661,
all of the Colonies had laws prohibiting slavery. It was in that year that
the Jews had become powerful enough to bring about the repeal of these
laws, and slavery began in earnest.
The Jews had discovered that the Colonists needed additional manpower
to help them clear their fields for planting, helping in the construction
of dwellings, and in general to help with harvesting their crops. This was
particularly true of the Southern states which we have referred to
earlier. The Southerners had vast tracts of rich soil suitable for rice,
cotton, tobacco and cane sugar. At first, impoverished Europeans were
recruited. English prison doors were opened and finally prisoners ot war
from England and Holland were brought to the Colonies, made to work until
they had paid the cost of transporting them by ship and then set free.
It doesn't take a Jew long to discover what his brothers are doing, so
a group of Jews settled in Charleston, South Carolina, where they set up
distilleries for making rum and whiskey. They, too, learned that they
could trade with the natives on the West Coast of Africa for ivory, and
several ships were purchased and sent to Africa, trading the usual glass
beads and other cheap ornaments for ivory, which, however, took up but
little space on board ship. It occurred to these Jew traders that they
could supply the plantations in the South with 'Black ivory', needed under
swampy and malarial conditions which European labor could not tolerate
without sickness, and which would not only fill the holds of their ships,
but bring enormous profits. (This same group had earlier tried selling
Indians as slaves but they found them completely unsatisfactory, as the
Indians would not tolerate this type of work.) Thus, another segment of
the slave trading had become active and profitable out of Charleston,
South Carolina. Several shiploads of Black slaves were sent by the Dutch
West Indies Company to Manhattan.
During this time there were a number of plantation owners established
in the West Indies and two Jews, Eyrger and SayUer, with strong Rothschild
connections in Spain, formed an agency called ASIENTO, which later
operated in Holland and England. It was through these connections that
Jews in Holland and England exerted influence and both of these
connections cooperated in helping the Jews provide Black Slaves for the
With the yearly capture and transport of one million Black slaves it is
not difficult to figure that from 1661 to 1774 (one hundred thirteen
years) approximately one hundred ten million slaves had been removed from
their native land. About ten percent, or ELEVEN MILLION, Black slaves
reached the Colonies alive.
We have talked about the small ship "Abigail" which could accommodate
only 56 people and yet the profits per trip were enormous, with little or
no investment. There were many other ships but we will concentrate here on
only a few, such as the "La Fortuna," "Hannah," "Sally" or the "Venue"
which made very great profits. The "La Fortuna," by the way, transported
approximately 217 slaves on each trip. The owner cleared not less than
$41,438.00 from such a trip. These were dollars which the slave dealers
'could keep'. And these were dollars of value which would buy a great deal
When one considers that the Jews of Newport owned about 300
slave-transporting ships, active without interruption, docking at
Newport-Africa, Charleston, (or Virginia), one can approximate the
tremendous earnings which made their way to Jew ship owners. Indeed, the
Jews admit, that of the 600 ships, leaving Newport harbor into all the
world, "at least half of them" went their way to Africa, and we know what
these ships going to Africa "were seeking."
The fact that Aaron Lopez had control of over more than half of the
combined deals in the Colonies of Rhode Island, with Newport, is
well-known. The well-known Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein, in his book, The
Story of the Jews in Newport, attempts to remove these facts, maintaining
that there is not any evidence that the Jews were connected with the Slave
Trade. It is therefore imperative to prove that the Jew was indeed
connected with the slave trading. Especially so since this rabbi insists
they had made great contributions, and how very "blessed" their residence
became for the city of Newport. Surely Morris A. Gutstein will grant us
permission to present the facts which he was unable to find.
Turning to one report of the Chamber of Commerce of the "Rhode Island Colony" in the year 1764, we find, for instance, that in the year 1723
"a few merchants in Newport" devised the idea to send their Newport rum to
the coast of Africa. It developed into such a great export that in the
matter of a few years "several thousand (hogsheads)" of rum went that way.
To which purpose did this rum serve?
The Carnegie Institute in Washington, D.C., presents and makes public
authentic documents entitled "Documents Illustrative of the History of the Slave Trade in America". We wish to present a few facts from this
particular collection of original documents and scrutinize them at closer
range, and not at all to prove the heretofore Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein in
error. In this collection of the first American institute of learning, we
evaluate the capital "Rhode Island" which contributed the main share of
the public documentation regarding the Slave trading. Here we find
documented the recipients of the numerous shipping letters, also letters
to the Slave dealers, and correspondence to the ship's captains, who were
about 15% Jews, living in Newport. Among these we find, for instance, the
Jew Isaac Elizar. He wrote a letter to Captain Christopher Champlin on
February 6, 1763, saying he would like to be an agent for a load of
slaves. Then follows the Jew Abraham Pereira Mendez, and one of the main
slave dealers, Jacob Rod Rivera-the father-in-law of Aaron Lopez. And then
there is Aaron Lopez, himself, and many, many more other Jews. Although we
have considered Aaron Lopez several times, the size of this documented
treatise limits us, and we cannot describe all of the writers concerned in
the Slavery Dealing correspondence, their names and the special
dates rather, we wish to study the documentation of the 'Carnegie
Institute' itself keeping Aaron Lopez in mind. We wish to see what in the
main this Jew was pursuing and what his business was. This is due to the
fact that Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein presents him as a "lofty and fine civilian of Newport" who was so generous and even "made contributions to welfare."
In a great number of published original unprejudiced writings in the
Carnegie Institute, we find that Aaron Lopez pursued a tremendous commerce
in rum with the African coast in exchange for slaves. These irrefutable
facts are as follows:
Aside from that, there are similar statements out of letters by Aaron
Lopez in the original, which he directed to the Captains Henry Cruger,
David Mill, Henry White, Thomas Dolbeare, and William Moore. Indeed, one
letter by Captain William Moore to Aaron Lopez & Company, is
particularly revealing, and of special mention at this point. We wish to
remark on the main contents of this letter in which Captain Moore writes:
"I wish to advise you that your ship 'Ann' docked here night before last with 112 slaves, consisting of 35 men, 16 large youths, 21 small boys, 29 women, 2 grown girls, 9 small girls, and I assure you this is such a one rumcargo (rum in exchange for slaves) which I have not yet encountered, among the entire group there may be five to which one could take exception."

- February 9, 1767, a letter by Captain William Stead to Aaron Lopez.
The date of the above letter was November 27, 1773. We have not yet
concluded, because of lack of space, the excerpts and grateful
compilations made available by the "Carnegie Institute."
On November 29, 1767, the Jew Abraham Pereira Mendez who had been
cheated by one of his kind from Charleston, where he had journeyed to
better control his Black cargo, wrote Aaron Lopez at Newport:
"These Negroes, which Captain Abraham All delivered to me, were in such poor condition due to the poor transportation, that I was forced to sell 8 boys and girls for a mere 27 (pounds), 2 other for 45 (pounds) and two women each for 35 (pounds)." (No doubt, English money)
Abraham Pereia Mendez was very angry and accused Aaron Lopez of
"cheating" him. This letter delineates to us that this generous and fine
citizen of Newport was insatiable in his greed for money. This is what
caused the Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein to present this nobleman, Aaron Lopez,
to pursue his objectionable methods. Negroes presented to him but a
In all of the letters which the "Carnegie Institute" published, it
stresses the lack of human sympathy for the poor Negro slaves. This lack
of feeling and compassion for the abused and pitiful Blacks at the hands
of their Jewish dealers, can be read out of the diary of a captain who
manned a ship owned by Aaron Lopez. The entrees concern a trip from the
African Coast to Charleston. Moreover, they are authentic documents,
published by the "Camegie Institute" in Washington, D.C., calling
attention to an organization which had heretofore known little or nothing
about; neither had they encountered further publicity in books or
newspapers. Therefore, it is not to be wondered at that the facts of the
leading share of American Jews in the slave trade could be pointed out as
a monopoly, and unknown to the non-Jewish Americans, including the great
masses of people all over the world. Others, however, acquainted with the
facts, had good reason to remain painfully quiet.
The captain of another ship, the "Othello" among other things, makes
the following entries in his diary:
This vessel was on its way for five months. What terrible and
unspeakable suffering was the lot of these millions of Blacks, who were
torn with brutal force from their friendly African huts, jammed together,
like animals below deck, and then sold with less concern than selling a
head of cattle. Small wonder that ten of them died, being purchased for
just a few dollars, and then sold for the sum of $2,000.00.
- February 6th: One man drowned in the process of loading.
- March 18th: Two women went overboard because they had not been locked up.
- April 6th: One man dead with Flux. (No doubt an illness.)
- April 13th: One woman dead with Flux.
- May 7th: One man dead with Flux.
- June 16th: One man dead by Kap Henry.
- June 21st: One man dead by James Fluss.
- July 5th: One woman dead with fever.
- July 6th: One girl, sick for two months, died.
Some Negroes managed, through insurrection, to gain control of one or
another ship and turned it around, with full sails, toward their African
home. The crew of one slave ship, "Three Friends" for instance, tortured
their Black cargo in such a manner that the Negroes reciprocated in a
bloody rebellion. They killed the captain and the entire crew and threw
the dead overboard. They then sailed back to Africa where they had barely
escaped their hard-won freedom.
A similar fate struck the slave ship "Amistad". Among the slaves was
the son of an enemy tribal chief. Once the ship was under way, he schemed
with his compatriots to attack the ship's crew. Following a bloody battle,
they managed to capture the captain. The Negro prince forced him to turn
back to Africa, then in the evening, under cover of darkness, he changed
his course, zigzagged for months untfl he came close to the American
coast, and encountered a government ship. This took place in the year 1839
when slave trading was already forbidden and illegal.
The Negro slaves were freed and the captain punished. These sea voyages
were not without danger when they had Black cargo, which accounts for the
fact that the Jews most always engaged non-Jewish captains.
The slave dealers preferred to remain in their offices and counted the
fat winnings following each journey, such as Aaron Lopez, who left his
heirs one of the largest fortunes in the New England area.
When reviewing the documented facts contained herein, it is important
that one always remembers that it was a lucky captain who did not lose
more than 9 out of 19 slaves on the return trip.
It is equally important to remember that these poor Black creatures had
to lie in human excrement for the entire trip. Think of it! No wonder
sickness and disease took such a high toll. Remember the figures:
approximately one hundred ten million Black people were captured and
removed from their homeland in Africa. Only ELEVEN MILLION of these Black
slaves reached the Colonies alive.
And the Jews still talk about the Germans and Hitler and how six
million Jews were exterminated during World War II. This is the greatest
LIE ever perpetrated upon the people of the world - whereas the story of the
poor Black slaves is documented. Documented with TRUTH. The evidence is
still available for the people of the world to see.

As this document is distributed, eventually reaching the hands of the
Jew, the evidence will probably be removed and destroyed until finally all
documentation is removed which is damaging to the Jew. The Jews have been
engaged in this practice for centuries. Truth, however truth which bears
fact cannot remain covered or hidden forever and more truths are being
disclosed by those of us who intend to free America of these sons of the
devil the Jews.

217 slaves which cost about $4,300 and sold for $41,438.00.
Only about 10% of the slave ship captains were Jews, not wanting to
subject themselves to the rigors of the 6-month journey. They preferred to
stay at home and continue their distillery operations which continued to
supply rum and whiskey to the Indians for many years at a very great

We cannot undertake even this brief history of the modern Jew without
taking note of a phenomenon which his confounded Gentile societies for
twenty centuries. This is the ability of the Jewish people to collectively
retain their identity despite centuries of exposure to Christian
civilization. To any student of Judaism, or to the Jews themselves, this
phenomenon is partly explained by the fact that Judaism is neither mainly
a religion, nor mainly a raciai matter, nor yet is it simply a matter of
nationality. Rather it is all three, it is a kind of trinity. Judaism is
best described as a nationality built on the twin pillars of race and
religion. All this is closely related to another aspect of Judaism, namely
the persecution myth. Since first appearing in history, we find the Jews
propagating the idea that they are an abused and persecuted people, and
this idea is, and has always been, central in Jewish thinking. The myth of
persecution is the adhesive and cement of Judaism: without it Jews would
have long since ceased to exist, their racial-religious nationality
It is a fact that the Jewish people have suffered numerous hardships in
the course of their history, but this is true of other peoples too. The
chief difference is that the Jews have kept score. We Must repeat they
have kept score they have made a tradition of persecution.
A casual slaughter of thousands of Chriestians is remembered by no one
in 50 years, but a disability visited upon a few Jews is preserved forever
in Jewish histories. And they tell their woes not only to themselves, but
to a sympathetic world as well.
