Ignatius Sancho Quote

When Capt. Williams had conquered the crew, they found sixty dead upon deck;- the two ships exhibited a scene more like a slaughter-house, than any thing imaginable- These, oh Christians! are the features of war- and thus Most Christian Kings and Defenders of Faith shew their zeal and love for the dying commands of their Divine Master


(from vol 2, letter 78: 18 Aug 1780, to J___ S___ esq.).
