Scarce. OCLC locates no copies. A curious juvenile anti-slavery poem in which "Zante" tells the little English child how fortunate he or she is to be born English. The rear cover bears another piece of verse titled "Praise for Christian Birth." (The English Child of this time was fortunate not to be exploited in a factory.)
