Excerpt:

 

The island of Bolama in Portuguese Guinea, now known as Guiné (or Guinea) Bissau, was the site of an attempt to establish a colony by a group of English, led by Philip Beaver. This led to considerable dispute between the Portuguese and British, which was ultimately arbitrated by US President Ulysses Grant, in favour of Portugal. The author follows the various competing claims that eventually led to an agreement to seek arbitration.
