1862 - Parliamentary Papers - Kingdom of Whydah / Judah

“With regard to the Slave Trade in the Bights, I have heard that, subsequent to the taking of Porto Novo, the King of Dahomey had collected 1,000 slaves at Whydah: that part of the station has, however, been vigilantly watched by our cruizers, and with the exception of a vessel which escaped with a cargo of slaves from the neighbourhood of Whydah in April last, I have not heard of any slaves having been carried away from the Bights of Benin and Biafra.

By Black History In The Bible

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47
