A he informed me also that the child ate voraciously of milk and sometimes other kinds of food but that it referred the to wild is of the female sex. He stated further that several eminent j Hysi cans and surgeons had been to see the Childr and that it had been recommended by one the eminent or. A that the Tongu Quot be extirpated.

On their arrival in new Orleans they a pointed a committee of their own ii Mim to make a statement of the whole Aflaki to the people. I he committee performed their duty in a praiseworthy spirit. Their declaration is As Fellows we the undersigned officers Crew Antl Pas sengers of the american Schooner Julius Casar left the port of new Orleans on the evening of the 8ih of april bound to Brazoria i exas.
