Northeast Point, and I have known several to be so reported in one day. It is a noted track for whalers, and it would be absurd to detain every vessel that sailed past the islands. Suspicious looking schooners are watched with sufficient care. If the vessel the Commissioners saw had undertaken to raid a rookery it would have met with a warm reception. I do not pretend to say that the British Commissioners were not vividly impressed with the events they record. I merely state the facts as they were, so that everyone can form his own impressions of them.

WM. H. WILLIAMS. Subscribed and sworn to before me this 20th day of December, 1892. (SEAL.]

SEVELLON A. BROWN, Notary Public in and for the District of Columbia.
