ADRESSE A MESSIEURS LES HABITANTS DU PETIT- GOAVE...[caption title]
by [Saint Domingue]: Aussigne, Marquis d': [Haiti]
[Cap Français], 1789. 2pp. on a. single sheet. Minor toning. Untrimmed. Very good. A defense of the importance of France's colonies, with a particular emphasis on the business and economic values, by the Marquis d'Aussigne. He warns of the consequences of a split between France and its Caribbean colonies, urging the French National Assembly to allow provincial administrations in the provinces. This desperate attempt to maintain aristocratic control over France's colonies came at the emergence of the Revolution and is a significant example of the futile attempts of the large planter class to preserve power and order. Apparently unrecorded. (Inventory #: WRCAM51174)
