Quotes from biographical sources

The Government of Liberia gives twenty-five acres of land to each family while the American Colonization Society pays their passage from New York, and provides them with stores until such time as their first crops can be harvested. About sixty of the emigrants, who sailed in the bark Jasper ware professing Christians, and among them is one minister of the gospel.

Dr. John N. Lewis, a native of Liberia, also returns with this company. He came to America some years since to study medicine, has just completed his medical studies, and has received a diploma from the Medical School of Dartmouth College. The colonists left in good spirits in the new republic of Liberia.
