This is a record of the arrival of the Italian ship "Glensamore" into the port of Havana on January 5, 1874. Several Chinese settlers had been brought to Cuba aboard the ship, and before any of them could disembark an inspection of the sanitary and health conditions on the ship had to occur. An inspector and a Chinese interpreter were assigned to examine and interview the settlers, and inquire about the treatment they received from the crew throughout the voyage. Fourteen Chinese colonists died during the voyage to Cuba.
