Printed letter from prominent, French slavery abolitionist, Hippolyte de Saint-Anthoine, signed in ink, in his capacity as Le Secretaire-general, l'Institut d'Afrique, dated Paris, 2nd. September 1847. The folding, 4 page, 10 in. x 8 in., printed, folio letter, informs Edward Benthal Esq., that he has been enrolled as a member of the British Section of the Institut d'Afrique and is signed in ink by Saint-Anthoine. The letter has a printed addenda containing statements from 26 eminent members, supporting the society's aims, among them the abolition of slavery in Africa. Also included is a list of the rules of l'Institute d'Afrique and names of the entire membership. Very good condition.

Members of the Institut d'Afrique regarded French colonisation as a civilising influence, which would expedite the abolition of slavery, spread Christianity and promote French political and economic interests in Africa. Hippolyte de Saint-Anthoine was also a member of the leading, French, anti-slavery organisation, La Societe pour l'Abolition de l'Esclavage. The abolitionists achieved some of their aims, following the Liberal revolution of 1848. A year after this letter was sent, Louis Napoleon abolished slavery in the French colonies.
