15 February 1840

I should be unwilling to adopt any measure to favour the transfer of labourers from British India to Guiana... I am not prepared to encounter the responsibility of a measure which may lead to a dreadful loss of life on the one hand, or, on the other, to a new sustem of slavery. [1]

A New System of Slavery, page xiii

...most of the coolies who crossed the sea a hundred years ago or more, died without issue. Only a tiny minority of these Indians had children to claim their share in the lands where the pioneers struggled and died. [1]

THE UNKNOWN IMMIGRANT

History turning a blind eye bore him not witness
History standing still told not his full story
He who first had watered this land with his sweat
And turned stone into green fields of gold
The first immigrant He, son of this land
He was mine, he was yours, he was our very own
