Notes:
One morning in 1805, Captain Amasa Delano, a seal hunter and abolitionist, climbed aboard a distressed Spanish slaver. He spent all day on the ship, sharing food and water, yet failed to see that the slaves, having slaughtered most of the crew, were their own masters. When Delano realized the deception, he responded with awful violence.
