its effc&s on morals, indujtry, and the peace of
focicty. Some facts and calculation* are offered
to prove the labor of freemen to be much more
productive than that ot slaves ; that countries are
rich, powerful and happy, in proportion as the
laboring people eAjoy the fruits of their own
labor ) and hence the n<ce(Taiy conclusion, that
(lavery is impolitic as well « unjuji.

AN ESSAY ON THE
Natural Equality of Men,
On the Rights that result from it, and on the
Duties which it imposes.
To which a MEDAL was adjudged, by the
Teylerian Society at Haarlem.

ProfelTor of Moral Philosophy, and the Law

and Minister of the Englilh Church at U
Aliquid temper ad communem utilitatem af
ferent! nm. Cicero.
The Firjl American Edition.
THE grand principle of Equality, if right
ly nnderftood, is the only basis on which
universal justice, sacred order, and perfedfc
freedom, can be firmly built, and permanent
ly secured. The view of it exhibited in this
efTay, at the fame time that it reprefles the
insolence of office, the tyranny of pride, and
the outrages of oppreflion ; confirms, in the
most forcible manner, the necessity of subor
dination, and the just demands of lawful au
thority. So far indeed, from loosening the
bands of society, that it maintains inviolate,
every natural and every civil diftinftion,
draws more closely every social tie, unites in
one harmonious and justly proportioned sys
tem, and brings men together on the even
ground of the inherent rights of human na
ture, of reciprocal obligation, and of a com
mon relation to the community.
