A letter from James Covey acknowledging Lewis Tappan's letter. Covey states that Stanton Pendleton has let him return to teach the Amistad Captives. If he is to stay in New Haven, he asks that Tappan provide him with work. He writes that "the man who keep the house is wicked man indeed I never saw in my life and he is a lire [liar] man and drink rum and swear and curse God who made him." Covey mentions that he has seen a likeness of Cinque but does not think it good and if Covey does not have work he, "desire to go to sarvent [servent] to rich men," stating that Tappan told him he sent a letter "to London to the Capt. Feety."
