Content: Printed on border: "Cowardice sometimes a protection." "A portion of her cargo was landed in boats, and all the money, clothing, and articles of value, which could be found on board, were taken away. The captain, officers, and crew were abused, and shockingly maltreated, but none of them were killed. As night approached, the pirates all left the vessel, cut the cables, and went ashore. The captain and crew with great exertions, got sail on the brig, just in time to prevent her from going on the rocks; and the next morning went into Havana." Written on border: "1840"
