Abstract: JANUARY 3. Received 2 letters from Axim, from (97) Mr 0ckers,dd.28. & 31.December; in the first of which he reports that the ASHANTEES had defeated a part of the beach people (ie ANCOBERS),and had entirely ruined the Crom of AMOE. AMOE with some of his caboceers had been captured in the Crom of NOBBRE AKKA. The Ashantees had only done this because the beach people refused to hand over the fugitive WASSAS. He further understood that Caboceer BOA had entered into an agreement with the Ashantees about these WASSAS. In the 2nd letter,he reports that the beach people had paid to AJEBAMANFOU the claim of 6 Bendas ; and the beach people had also drunk oaths with the AXIMS, that the Axims had no more palavers with them ; and further,that our servant would, that evening bring the 6 bendas to Ajebamanfou.
