Amos Townsend reports that James Covey understands he is to "attend the 'Grand Court' at Hartford." Townsend writes that he has provided an overcoat, shoes, and money to Covey. It is also mentioned that George E. Day and Josiah W. Gibbs have received books sent to them and that four of the Amistad Captives are to travel to Hartford to attend court. Townsend goes on to discuss Cinque's former story that he had owned and sold a slave, as well as the details of his family. He writes that Roger Baldwin has stated that the Marshall showed him a letter from Judge Johnson concerning clothing for the Amistad Captives and that the Marshall has obtained a certificate from "select men of the town & the attending physician" that clothing is sufficient. It is suggested that the Amistad Captives would learn English better if they were separated from each other.
