Beschreibung thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. FOR many years the South has been noted for its beautiful Quadroon women. Bottles of ink, and reams of paper, have been used to portray the "finely-cut and well-moulded features, " the "silken curls, " the "dark and brilliant eyes, " the "splendid forms, " the "fascinating smiles, " and "accomplished manners" of these impassioned and voluptuous daughters of the two races, - the unlawful product of the crime of human bondage. When we take into consideration the fact that no safeguard was ever thrown around virtue, and no inducement held out to slave-women to be pure and chaste, we will not be surprised when told that immorality pervades the domestic circle in the cities and towns of the South to an extent unknown in the Northern States.
