A PAPER appeared in the PHRENOLOGICAL JOURNAL of November, 1874, which propounded what many may regard as the preposterous idea that a black, or perhaps more properly, a dark-skinned race of men once occupied Western Europe. It may not be an idea flattering to our vanity that very many of us, boasting or Indo-Aryan blood, who have belabored, enslaved, and imbruted the colored races from Africa, are descendants also of an African ancestry, or one about as dark-complexioned, if not identical.
