Slaver ""Zeldina"" at Port Royal
The image shows the slaver ""Zeldina"" anchored at Port Royal in 1857. It is a reproduction of one of the images sent with a letter from Kingston, Jamaica, dated May 11th, 1857, to The Illustrated London News, the source of this image. The newspaper published the letter and the pictures provided by the letter. The schooner ""Zeldina"" embarked slaves at Cabinda, but she was blown off her way to Cuba and captured by the British naval force in April, 1857.
