Excerpt: THE BRITISH BUILT AND EQUIPPED CRUISERS. The Florida, the Alabama, the Georgia, and the Shenandoah, were each built and equipped in the ports of Great Britain; other cruisers escaping from the ports of the insurgents were received and harbored in the ports of Great Britain, and the United States maintain that England is liable for damages occasioned to citizens of the United States by all of these vessels; but for the present, I confine myself to the consideration of her liability for damages caused by the four vessels above-mentioned. The facts attending the building, equipping, escape, arming, and reception of those cruisers were somewhat different in each case; and an attempt has been made to argue that though England might be liable for damages occasioned by one or more, she was not liable for damages by the others. Before arguing to show her liability for damages from either of these cruisers, it is well to have as full knowledge as possible of the facts in regard to them all. I, therefore, go on to state these facts somewhat fully, considering the case of each vessel in the order of time at which she left the ports of Great Britain. THE FLORIDA. This vessel was an iron screw steam gunboat, built at Liverpool by Miller and Sons for Fawcet, Preston
