This original newspaper includes an article on the treaty between Britain and the Netherlands for the more effectual abolition of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. In 1792 the House of Commons passed a motion for gradual abolition which faded away amongst the House of Lords committees. The rearguard resistance of the West Indian interest, and fear of the dangers of reform in an atmosphere of potential revolution, inhibited the cause in the later 1790s. ref AN/37
