NOTE II.-ON CLAPPERTON'S JOURNEY INTO AFRICA.
In the Article of our last Number on Clapperton's Journey into Africa,' we attached blame to the conduct of Bello, Sultan of the Fellatas, towards that unfortunate traveller, from the treatment he experienced at his hands, as stated in the Journal. Since that was written, we have been favoured with the translation, from the Arabic, of the two following Letters, which did not appear, nor were noticed in the Journal by Clapperton, but were found by Mr. Salamé among some loose papers. In justice to the Sultan, we deem it right to give them the same degree of publicity as was given to our reflections on his conduct. The second letter is admirable, and does honour to his head and heart. It is difficult to conceive why so reasonable and friendly a letter should have failed to subdue the irritable temper of the traveller: this can only be accounted for by ill health, or supposing that he was ignorant of its contents. The conversation with the Gadado, indeed, (p. 237 of the Journal,) is to the same effect; but the state of his mind at that time was so disturbed and agitated, that he might have thought it not worth the trouble of having the letter explained to him.
No. 1.-Translation of a Letter from Sultan Bello at Sackatú to Captain Clapperton, on his arrival at Kanó,
In the name of God, and praise be to God, &c. &c. To our intimate friend, the faithful to his promise, Abd-allah Clapperton, Salutation be unto you.
'The object in sending this is to inform you that we have received, some time ago, your letter, and have learned your safe arrival in the territory of Kanó. We now, therefore, welcome you, through this epistle, with all the hospitality and honour we could possibly show you personally on this occasion; and may God cause us to meet you here in health and happiness, and bless us and you together,'

No. 2.-Translation of a Letter from Sultan Bello to Captain Clapperton while
You are now our guest, and a
'In the name of God; and praise be to God, &c. &c. 'To Abd-allah Clapperton, Salutation and esteem. guest is always welcomed by us; you are the messenger of a king, and a king's messenger always honoured by us; you come to us under our honour as an ambassador, and an ambassador is always protected by us. There is no harm in the king's ministers sending you to the Sheikh Kanemi of Bornou; nor do we see any harm in your coming when thus sent. But when you formerly came to us from Bornou, peace was then between us and the sheikh; whereas there is now war between him and ourselves: we cannot perceive any blame in our preventing warlike stores from being sent to him.
'We continue to maintain our faith with you, and ready to attend to all your wishes; because we consider you as a trusty friend, and one who enjoys a high degree of esteem with us. Do not encroach upon us-we will not encroach upon you: we have rights to maintain, and you have also rights to be respected.—And salám be to you.'
