The speaker approves of the civilization goals of the African Aid Society that proposes to move black families from Canada to Africa. He believes this offers a postive way to improve the lives of all concerned, and provide England with a different source for cotton. Like many abolitionists, he believes that slavery is mainly continued in the U.S. based on the money made from the production of cotton.
