PERRY, Commodore M.C. & Others. COLONIAL SETTLEMENTS - WESTERN COAST OF AFRICA. Letter from the Secretary of the Navy transmitting Correspondence from Commodore M.C. Perry, relative to colonial settlements on the western coast of Africa. £ 10.00

Washington. House of Representatives. Navy Department. 1844. pp. 42. 8vo. Disbound. 28th Congress, 1st Session. Doc. No. 244. Commodore Perry is patrolling the Western Coast of Africa to protect American citizens living and working there. He states that he is 'glad to hear, from good authority, that none of the kings or chiefs present were engaged in the slave-trade.' Although he is covering the area where slaves were gathered for sale to Americans and Europeans this is not a slave related document.
