DECLARATION.

Whereas a Convention, having for its object the prevention of the illicit Traffic in Slaves, was concluded between His Britannic Majesty and His Most Faithful Majesty, and signed at London on the 28th of July, 1817:—

And whereas by the second Article of that Convention the Traffic in Slaves was declared still to be permitted to Portugueze subjects, only within certain territories therein described:

And whereas the Territories of Molembo and Cabinda are described by that Article to be on the Eastern coast of Africa; and whereas this description is evidently a verbal mistake, the said Territories of Molembo and Cabinda, lying in fact upon the Western and not upon the Eastern coast of Africa :

Signed CASTLEREAGH, (L.S.)

It is hereby declared, by the undersigned, that the word Eastern, in that part of the second Article above alluded to, shall be held to be annulled, and the word Western to stand in its place; and the latter part of the Article in question shall accordingly be held to run thus :

"The Territories of Molembo and Cabinda, upon the Western coast of Africa, from the fifth degree, twelve minutes, to the eighth degree south latitude."

It was further agreed between the undersigned, that the present Declaration shall be considered as an integral part of the said Convention.

In witness and in faith of the above, the undersigned, His Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, and His Most Faithful Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at the Court of St. James's, have hereunto set their hands and seals, at London, this third day of April, 1819.
