A Letter From St Christopher’s, West Indies, Referring to the Selling of Slaves. December 3rd, 1788.
<< Back

I am very sorry to say I have not been able to get rid of any of your slaves, altho’ I have lately attempted to dispose of them at Vendue for you but from their being so well known I could not procure one half their values. I am now giving Bogie & Fanny a trial in my field, and should they answer I will take them myself for my new purchased estate, that that was my late brother’s at Nichola Town. Fanny I think may do, but I fear Bogie is too great a rascal ever to be reclaimed, as he has given me more troubles within the last six months than all the negroes I am owner of.
