On the Deplorable State of the [Mi’kmaq]

“A human being as he comes originally from the hand of nature, is everywhere the same.”

“…The Planter was now struck with shame, and confusion, when he recognized, in his kind protector the [indigenous person] whom he so harshly treated.

He confessed that he knew him, and was full of excuses for his brutal behavior; to which the [indigenous person] only replied; when you see poor [Mi’kmaq] fainting for a cup of cold water, don’t say again, get you gone you [indigenous] dog.

The [indigenous person] then wished him well on his journey, and left him.” It is not difficult to say which of these two had the best claim to the name of Christian.”
