1820 - Vessels Captured
Three vessels belonging to Bristol, Rhode Island, have been captured by the British Brig Thistle, all with full cargoes of slaves, and sent to Sierra Leone. We regret that they were not captured by the Cyane, and trust that our vessels, on that coast, will be unusually vigilant in detecting these violators of law and gospel. Nat. Advertiser
