I have had the honor of dining with his Excellency the President (not at his own house - I did back out from that), but at no less august a place that the Ward-room of the Yorktown - Listened to the debates in the Senate Hall, accompanied their Army in it military expeditions - made myself agreeable to the fashionable fair; drank wine with the great Officers of States in their houses and whiskey with the General in his tent…From experiences thus gained, I have come to the conclusions following - That the Republic of Liberia is a glorious republic - That the Sovereign and that the President is - (as one of his aides one day remarked) 'the President is a great nigga'. By the way I have in my possession a note from that same officer - (who is no other than the celebrated Colonel Hicks), and which I have preserved as a curiosity…The Black Schoundrel I had never seen him but once, and as a result of that meeting had registered a passing vow, to break his shins the next time I met him (you know it is not use trying to break a negro's head or neck). The military expedition alluded to was to a place called New Cess…the quarrel was about…'that the rascals down there said the people up at Monrovia were black'. When we got down there, however, we found there was a slave factory to broken up, which with the assistance of a French Steamer they did, capturing the slave dealers and burning the towns of the Chiefs who supported them…we had the please of carrying the President with us to a place to the northward called Cape Mount…", second leaf seems to be missing; some light staining, F.-V.F., a great early U.S. Naval letter from Monrovia.
