he plays on the side of emotion with the use of morals. Last but not least, to what authorities does each author appeal to. Postlethwayt appeals to, in my opinion, to rich plantation-owning white men. And anybody else this would economically benefit or anybody else that believes his statements. Wesley appeals to, in my opinion, to politicians with morals and other moral people. In my opinion, they are both trying to appeal to very different audiences in a way to gain a bigger support base. After reporting all the details, I am ready to wrap a bow around my point with my conclusion. To conclude, I compared two paramount documents to slavery in England by two very intriguing figures of their time period. John Wesley wrote Thoughts Upon Slavery in 1774. Malachy Postlethwayt wrote The Nature and Private Advantages of the African Trade Considered: Being an Enquiry How Far It Concerns the Trading Interest of Great Britain,

Daniels, 5 Effectually to Support and Maintain the Forts and Settlements in Africa Belonging to the Royal African Company of England in 1746 . I first quickly looked at the backgrounds of both the writers and gave historical context to help compare the colossal figures and crucial document to the battle of slavery at its capstone of slavery in England. After that, I looked at some of the similarities of the writers in my next paragraph. I started with the similarity that both were writing at the climax of slavery in England and the turning point, which lead to its abolishment in 1833. Another similarity brought up as they were both extremely well known for other things than slavery and these two documents compared in this paper. The last similarity that came up was Postlethwayt and Wesley both used imagery throughout the paper to persuade the reader. Since I completed the similarity part of the comparison, I went to the differences part. To begin, I started to look at the difference of on how they characterize black Africans and white Europeans. In addition, I also stated the difference of who is the writer's audience or who are they trying to speak to through this paper, and who is more convincing to their audience out of the two writers. Equally important, I wrote about how they differentiated on to what authorities does each author appeal to. In my opinion, I think that John Wesley was more persuasive than Malachy Postlethwayt. Since Wesley was so critically persuasive, he might have helped shifted the “tide” in the battle of slavery.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
