New York Makes Selling Goods Illegal for Slaves

New York makes it illegal for slaves to sell goods.

Thomas Tryon

In London, Thomas Tryon publishes two tracts critical of slavery: ‘The Negro’s Complaint of Their Hard Servitude, and the Cruelties Practised upon Them’ and ‘A Discourse in Way of Dialogue, between an Ethiopean or Negro-Slave and a Christian, That Was His Master in America’. These appeared as parts II and III of Friendly Advice to the Gentlemen-Planters of the East and West Indies (London, 1684).
