She was a slaver, one of the famous early 19th century Baltimore clippers. She was low-slung and fast, double-masted, small and agile, painted black to make it easier to hide herself off the African coast after slaving had been abolished.
Her hull was modified, with space below decks to bring the slaves from Africa to Cuba for the sugar plantations. Her last voyage as a slaver was in 1830, sailing out of the port of Havana on 13th July, with a crew of 34 and armed with a single carronade, 16 rifles and 15 pistols.She was captured by the British brig HMS Black Joke, with 567 African captives aboard. She patrolled the seas around Cuba until she was withdrawn from service in 1843.
