Slaves Liberated from Slaver ""Zeldina"", Jamaica
This is one image of a group of illustrations published in The Illustrated London News on June 20th, 1857. The illustrations were created by the newspaper based on images sent with a letter from Kingston, Jamaica, dated May 11th, 1857, describing the capture of slaver ""Zeldina"" and the conditions of the slaves disembarked. The schooner ""Zeldina"" embarked slaves at Cabinda, but she was blown off her route to Cuba, captured by the British naval force in April, 1857, and stationed at Port Royal, Jamaica.
