On the flogging of women
Document is an anonymous commentary on an article appearing in the February 28, 1827 edition of “The Anti-Slavery Monthly Reporter” that discussed propositions put forward by Lord Bathurst for reforms in the treatment of slaves in the Colonies; in particular, a prohibition of the flogging of women, which failed to pass. The author of the document is writing to give wider publicity to the planters’ vote to permit the flogging of women, “however painful the knowledge of these proceedings may be...” Includes a poem believed to be by Charlotte Elizabeth [Tonna].
