PROCES-VERBAL DE LA RECEPTION DU GENERAL DE DIVISION ERNOUF, EN QUALITE DE CAPITAINE-GENERAL DE LA GUADELOUPE ET DEPENDANCES [caption title]
by [Guadeloupe]: [Ernouf, Jean Augustin]
Guadeloupe, 1804. 4pp. Quarto, on a single folded sheet. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. Untrimmed. Rare document describing the arrival and greeting of Jean Augustin Ernouf to the island of Guadeloupe. Ernouf was appointed captain-general of Saint Domingue and Guadeloupe in 1804, replacing Jean-Baptiste Raymond Lacrosse, who had held the office for two years. Ernouf was sent to restore order and production to the colonies after the disastrous slave rebellion, which he successfully accomplished within the first year of his appointment. This interesting document describes his arrival by frigate and the conversation which ensued between Ernouf and Colonial Prefect Daniel Lescallier. A rare imprint, apparently unrecorded.
