  • Piratical barbarity or The female captive. : Comprising the particulars of the capture of the English sloop Eliza-Ann, on her passage from St. Johns to Antigua, and the horrid massacre of the unfortunate crew by the pirates, March 12, 1825. And of the unparalleled sufferings of Miss Lucretia Parker, a passenger on board said sloop--who after being retained a prisoner eleven days by the pirates, was miraculously delivered from their cruel hands. : The work is concluded with some well written and interesting moral reflections of Miss Parker, who attributes the preservation of her life and deliverance from captivity, to the interposition of Divine Providence--which renders it a very valuable and interesting work to all moral and serious minded persons, of whatever denomination. : [Two lines of quotation]
