JOURNAL, OF THE CAPTIVITY AND SUFFERINGS OF JOHN FOSS; SEVERAL YEARS A PRISONER AT ALGIERS: TOGETHER WITH SOME ACCOUNT OF THE TREAT|MENT OF CHRISTIAN SLAVES WHEN SICK:—AND OBSERVATIONS ON THE MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF THE ALGERINES.

O Slavery! thou friend of hell's recess!
Profuse of woes,—and pregnant with distress!
Eternal horrors, in thy presence reign,
And meagre Famine leads thy doleful train,
To each curst load subjection adds more weight,
And pain is doubled in the vassal's fate,
O'er Nature's sprightly face, thou spread'st a gloom,
And to the grave, do'st every pleasure doom.
