December 25, 1712
I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, Ishall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of yourproblems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimentedwith some of the newest and still the oldest methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome's would envy us if my program isimplemented.As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I sawenough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodiesalong its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a deadslave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are havinguprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, You sufferoccasional fires, your animals are killed.Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, Iam here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I have a foolproof method for controlling your blackslaves. I guarantee every one of you that if installed correctly it will control the slaves for at least 300 years . Mymethod is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I have outlined a number of differences amongthe slaves and make the differences bigger. I use fear, distrust and envy for control.These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take thissimple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is "age" but it's there only because it starts with an"A." The second is "COLOR" or shade, there is intelligence, size, sex, size of plantations and status on plantations,attitude of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, oris tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assureyou that distrust is stronger than trust and envy stronger than adulation, respect or admiration. The Black slaves afterreceiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self refueling and self generating for hundreds of years, maybethousands. Don't forget you must pitch the old black Male vs. the young black Male, and the young black Male against theold black male. You must use the dark skin slaves vs. the light skin slaves, and the light skin slaves vs. the dark skinslaves. You must use the female vs. the male. And the male vs. the female. You must also have you white servants andoverseers distrust all Blacks. It is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us. They must love, respect and trustonly us. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. If used intensely for one year, the slaves themselves will remain perpetually distrustful of each other.Thank you gentlemen
