Summary
References in the unpublished manuscripts of Emanuel Swedenborg suggested to [Wadström and others] the idea of establishing a Swedish colony in West Africa with the joint objectives of: campaigning against slavery; starting a Swedish colony; setting up a Swedenborgian church there; and creating a refuge for freed slaves. They were able to take significant steps towards these plans and, although they were not successful in their lifetimes, such plans came to fruition in due course. - from Introduction (p.5.)
