Advertisement: Debates of the House of Commons on the Slave Trade, Felix Farley’s Bristol Journal, 1792. The bookseller S Sellick is advertising a published account of a debate in the House of Commons on the slave trade, in which leading Abolitionist campaigner, William Wilberforce, describes the brutality of the trade. He referred in particular to a Bristol ship’s captain called John Kimber. Kimber ordered that a young female slave be whipped because she was unwell and could not eat. The girl died from her injuries five days later.
