Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'The Evening Herald published an account of the trial of the Captain of the Carl at Sydney. The brutalities that took place according to the evidence were something terrible. "Mount" who I have in custody, according to Dr Murray, went on the Islands disguised as a Missionary in the hope of luring natives on board the ship. Morris who is also a prisoner with me is said on the night of the butchery to have been occupied all night in loading guns for those who were engaged in slaughtering the natives in the Hold. The whole affair is more horrible than anything I remember reading of even in the African Slave Trade.'
