Sklaverei am Land
Gruppen von Afrikanern in den Städten
Each tribe, having elected its king and queen, paraded thestreets with a flag, having its name, and the words viva Isabella painted on it. Their majesties were dressed in the extreme of the fashion, and were very cermoniously waited on by the ladies and gentlemen of the court […] They bore their honours with the dignity the negro loves so much to assume, which they […] preserved in the presence of the whites. The whole gnag was under the commando of a Negro Marshall, who with drawn sword, having a small piece of sugar-cane on its point, was continually on the move to preserve order in the ranks.
But the chief object of the group was an athletic Negro, with a fantastic straw helmet, an immensly thivk girdle of strips of palm-leaves and other uncouth articles of dress. Whenever they stopped, this frightful figure would commence a devil‘s dance, which was the very signal for all his courts to join a general fandango.
There marched in perfect order Congos and Lucumis with their great sombreros of feathers […]
Araras with their cheeks covered with scars [… ] bedecked with shells and teeth of dogs and alligators […]
Mandingas very elegant with their wide trousers […]
They would march on to the palace of the captain, and, until the end of day, dance their way back through the streets of the town.
