The slaver ""Abbot Devereux"" was captured off the coast of Whydah by H.M.
Gun-boat ""Teaser"". An eyewitness provided an account of the capture dated August 6th,
1857, to The Illustrated London News, the source of this image. The slaver had a full
cargo of slaves destined to Cuba, but instead it was conducted to Sierra Leone by the
British naval force. The image is reproduced courtesy of the Manuscript, Archives and Rare
Book Library, Emory University.
