authorities of New Orlcaus desired permission
to have Iho flour brought to tho city for the

for tho purpose of bringing tho flour to tho
latter place, bntnpon tho express consideration
that no passengers should do allowed upon tbo

had made three voyages she was put Into the

to obiaiu irom mo occupation tno prons
which could be dorlvod from selling his wines.
