Abstract

When Flinders and some of his crew, the Investigator having been condemned and the Porpoise lost, came in the little sloop Cumberland to Port Louis in December, 1803, " to ask for succour and the means of repairs necessary to continue their voyage," to use the words of the passport, General De Caen, Governor of the Mauritius, refused the request, and made the captain and crew prisoners of war. Includes discussion by Mr J.B. Walker.
