§ MR. LEA
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if any information has reached Her Majesty's Government in reference to the shipwrecked British sailors alleged to be detained in South America, and to investigate the truth of the report, or effect their release, a gunboat has been sent?
§ *SIR J. FERGUSSON
H.M.S. Garnet has called at Good Success Bay to inquire 925 into the truth of the rumour, and the Commander's Report shows that the allegations were unfounded.
