It appears from that statement, that there were on board the vessel articles which constitute an equipment for Slave Trade. That the ship's papers were incomplete, inasmuch as that 250 barrels of gunpowder and 17 cases otinuskets, which formed part of the cargo, were not mentioned in the manifest. And it further appears that the passport which was granted by M.

It appears that you must have been aware of these facts; and the only excuse ofiered to account for the articles of slave equipment being found on bond the "@5531 Was that 31086 articles had been purchased, torrether with the vessel, when she was sold by the sentence of the Court which had condemned her for slave _trading; an excuse wholly futile and insuflicient.

Viscount Palmerston to Her lajest_y's Commissioners. GENTLEMEN, Foreign Oflice, December 31st, more
