Source F:
If abolotion shall take place, our interest in the West-India islands must be at an end,Seventy millions of property will wear away with time, and be sunk at last. The revenue will suffer an annual reduction of three millions at least; the price of sugar, which is now become a necessary article of life, must be immediately increased.

(William Beckford in A Descriptive Account of the Island of Jamaica)

Source G:

We know, and are ready to prove, that the general condition of the Slaves has been most grossly misrepresented by the London Anti-Slavery Society. We are convinced that the 'speedy annihilation' of Slavery would result in the devastation of the West India Colonies, with the loss of lives and property to the white Inhabitants, with inevitable distress and misery to the Black population, and with a fatal shock to the commercial credit of the Empire.

(In Defence of Slavery, taken from a pro-slavery newspaper, 1831)



Study sources F and G. What arguments do the writers justify the continuation of slavery and the slave trade?
