He also says, writing on the 4th April, 1871 — ' ' I should have had some
hesitation in ordering the destruction of this vessel had it not been notorious how
active are the preparations for the slave-trade this season, and how utterly
powerless the Sultan is to prevent the system of kidnapping and secret slave
