dc.description.abstract The Author of the following Account of Guinea having been one of the earliest and most distinguished advocates for the unfortunate Africans, a short account of him may not be unacceptable. Anthony Benezet was of a respectable family. And was born at St. Quitin in Picardy, in 1713. His father was one of the many Psotestant who, in consequence of the persecution’s which followed the revocation of the edict of Nantz, fought an asylum in foreign countries After a short stay in Holland, he settled with his wife and several children In London, in 1715 Our Author having received a liberal education, Served an apprenticeship in an eminent mercantile house in London. In 1731, the whole family removed to Philadelphia. His three brothers followed trade successfully but he, whose pursuits were directed to worthier objects than the attainment of wealth, and whose highest gratification confined in promoting the welfare of mankind, chose the humble, but useful, occupation of instructing young people in the paths of knowledge and virtue. en_US
