  • The Fullarton party arrived first. They landed at Port Glasgow and spent a few days of the autumn on Fullarton’s estate in Ayrshire. Mrs Fullarton was unwell, the effect, the doctor said, of the tropics and the long sea voyage. Luisa Calderon, unremarkable in the Port of Spain streets, was suddenly an exotic, a Spanish-speaking ‘creole’ of ‘an interesting countenance’ and ‘genteel appearance’, ‘slender and graceful’, with a muslin turban tied in the West Indian way. She and the Negroes who had helped to torture her, including Vallot’s own Porto Rico, were sent to London in the care of two of Fullarton’s servants. Fullarton was wasting no time in preparing his case for the Privy Council. But the story was also that in Ayrshire Mrs Fullarton had taken Luisa about in her carriage. Mrs Fullarton said later that the story was a libel, and sued.
