(p.181) Chapter Nine Remittances
The Voyage of the Slave Ship Hare

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses the aftermath of the sale, beginning with the voyage from South Carolina to Rhode Island. The Vernons earned a 17% profit from the voyage, which led them to send the Hare back to Sierra Leone again in November 1755. The formal outbreak of the French and Indian War in 1756 helped to ensure that this voyage would lose money. The section goes on to profile the later lives of the Vernons, Godfrey, Manigault, and Henry Laurens, who purchased 9 captives from the Hare. It concludes with a discussion of the early abolitionist movement, highlighting John Woolman’s visit to Newport just a few years after the voyage.
