Letter to Lincoln: "Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people"

Our republican system was meant for a homogeneous people. As long as blacks continue to live with the whites they constitute a threat to the national life. Family life may also collapse and the increase of mixed breed bastards may some day challenge the supremacy of the white man.

Reverend James Mitchell of Indiana, later appointed Commissioner of Emigration, presented Lincoln with additional reasons why the Negroes should be colonized, May 15, 1862
