The writer notes that "We sail tomorrow for Para [now Macapa] at the mouth of the Amazon after which we cruise for slaves and return here in six weeks". The Spanish slavers were very active at the time and the Brazilians were not enforcing anti-slave agreements very well. This ship later (29 June 1835) captured the Spanish slaver 'Tita' between Cuba & Turks with 394 slaves from Whydah on board (bound for Matanzas). A very early letter from a British anti-slave vessel. [The Serpent was also almost wrecked off Spithead in a Nov. 1836 hurricane - print included - and in the 1840s she was active in the China/Hong Kong area.] Cross Reference: SLAVES AND SLAVERY, BARBADOS, NAVAL MAIL, KENT (Image)
