Le Papin was one of the vessels destined to form the French squadron on the coast of Africa for the suppression of the slave trade, and was on her way to Senegal, intending to call at Mogador. 'I have this moment heard from the office of the British consul of the total wreck on the coast, between Azmoor and Mazagan, of another French man of war steamer, of 650 tons burden, and 140 horse power. The details are very shocking, and the number of lives lost are 77, including the captain and all the officers. with the exception of one midshipman. The newly appointed French consul to Mogador is numbered among the victims. Exactly one half of those on board the unfortunate vessel were drowned, the other half were saved under circumstances which reflect the highest credit on the British and French consul at Mazagan. Mr. Redman, for it was to his prompt arrival at the spot, and his energetic persuasion of the Moors to assist him, that the survivors owe their lives' (Shipping Gazette). [Boeknr.: 33254 ]
