The Sorrows of Yamba or the Negro Woman's Lamentation n.d. Printed pamphlet sold by J. Marshall printer to the Cheap Repository for Religious & Moral Tracts n.d. 12pp.

Notes: Excellent as an example of an Anti-slavery poem and the printed material circulated to inform people about the horrors of slavery and the salvation of Christianity by the abolitionists. The poem is in the form of a lament about a Negro Woman's experience of being separated from her child, her slave voyage and final salvation.
