THE UNITED STATES, APPELLANTS, v. THE LIBELLANTS AND CLAIMANTS
OF THE SCHOONER AMISTAD, HER TACKLE, APPAREL, AND FURNITURE, TOGETHER WITH
HER CARGO, AND THE AFRICANS MENTIONED AND DESCRIBED IN THE SEVERAL LIBELS
AND CLAIMS, APPELLEES.
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
40 U.S. 518; 10 L. Ed. 826
JANUARY, 1841 Term
It was the purpose of the Reporter to insert the able and interesting argument
of Mr. Adams, for the African appellees; and the publication of the "Reports"
has been postponed in the hope of obtaining it, prepared by himself. It
has not been received. As many of the points presented by Mr. Adams, in
the discussion of the cause, were not considered by the Court essential
to its decision: and were not taken notice of in the opinion of the Court,
delivered by Mr. Justice STORY, the necessary omission of the argument
is submitted to with less regret.
