A near-relative of Lincoln’s argument appears in one of the first doc'uments of colonial American history, Alexander Whitaker’s Good Newes From Virginia of 1613.
Whitaker urges that the Indians be well treated; after all, “One God created us, they have reasonable soules and intellectuall faculties as well as wee; we all have Adam for our common parent: yea, by nature the condition of us both is all one.”
