This article provides an example of actual conditions of slavery during the early 1800s in the United States. In this essay William Jay, a son of John Jay, acknowledges that Negroes in the slave states "suffer every form of oppression which the laws can inflict upon persons not actually slaves." But he goes on to extensively detail the prejudicial treatment of Negroes in the free states, including: lack of elective franchise; lack of administration of justice; lack of access to education; and lack of praiseworthy or respectful treatment.
