Full Narrative The great number of cases to be here noticed forbids more than a brief reference to each passenger. As they arrived in parties, their narratives will be given in due order as found on the book of recrods: William Griffen, Henry Moor; James Camper, Noah Ennells and Levin Parker. This party came from Cambridge, Md. HENRY is tall, copper-colored, and about thirty years of age. He com- plained not so much of bad usage as of the utter distaste he had to working all the time for the ? white people for nothing.? He was also decidedly of the opinion that every man should have his liberty. Four years ago his wife was ? sold away to Georgia ? by her young master; since which time not a word had he heard of her. She left three children, and he, in escaping,, also had to leave them in the same hands that sold their mother. He was owned by Levin Dale, a farmer near Cambridge. Henry was armed with a six-barreled revolver, a large knife, and a determined mind.
