I read this as part of research assistant work. Very well edited collection of letters written by a black Anglican missionary trained at Oxford during the eighteenth century and sent on a mission to Cape Coast during the peak years of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Interesting insights on African political structures, religious traditions, and gender relations during the period.
