Post North American events
The Times, August 20th, 1791:

" ........... The Fleet now engrosses the whole conversation of the City, and they every day expect to hear of its being off Tilbury Fort. We do not mean that which is commanded by Lord Hood, but that which is freighted with fine live Turtles!!!! ....... "

I am not overly versed in North American events of the period, but is this the matter to which the passage from the TDA refers, described under the heading of "Northwest Territory? Read here.
