Ebenezer Davies (1808-1882) was the author of American Scenes, and Christian Slavery (1849) written after a tour of four thousand miles in the United States. He was a Minister of Mission Chapel, New Amsterdam, Berbice. "During his recent sojourn in the United States, the Author did not conceive the intention of writing a book on the subject. All he contemplated was the publication of a few letters in a London Journal on which he had been accustomed to rely for intelligence from Europe when residing in Berbice. So much he was disposed to attempt for several reasons. "
