dcterms.description Tucker's communication last autumn to the president concerning sale by British officers in West Indies of slaves taken from fellow citizens has caused trouble. Self published fact. Opposition in England, abolition society and continental powers objecting and annoying the ministry. Admiral Cochrane at St. Mary's asks for proof. Government in unpleasant dilemma. Government can give evidence in possession at time of letter only and claim motive for not pursuing investigation had been erased by peace; second method to procure all evidence to establish the truth. Either answer will be turned against government. Asks Tucker to procure all evidence possible. This comes by Mr. Shaler, a special investigator. Acknowledges kind attention of his brother (Thomas Tudor Tucker) in recent illness.
