The moral and intellectual character of the Africans is widely different in different nations.
The American Race is marked by a brown complexion; long, black, lank hair; and deficient beard.
The Negroes have little invention, but strong powers of imitation, so that they readily acquire mechanic arts. They have a great talent for music, and all their external senses are remarkably acute.
In disposition the Negro is joyous, flexible, and indolent; while the many nations which compose this race present a singular diversity of intellectual character, of which the far extreme is the lowest grade of humanity.
