Poughkeepsie Journal – November 13, 1790

A monster, in reality
A captain of a Guinea ship is now
in gaol, and under prosecution at
the expense of the society establish-
ed in London for the abolition of
the slave trade…

…A young 
negro woman, with her infant at
her breast was kidnapped away
...At the same 
time he deliberately dashed out the
brains of the infant, on the deck of
the ship, and threw it overboard in
the mother's presence. As she was a
young woman of uncommon beauty,
in less than an hour she was dragged
by this captain to his bed, and com-
pelled to endure the embraces of 
her child's murderer!"
