No. 22. TRINIDAD,
I2th February, 1834.
On Sunday the 9th instant I had the honor to receive
your despatch No. 52 of the i8th December containing
instructions for my guidance in the event of the arrival here
of further cargoes of prize negroes-On the same day I received
a letter from the Governor of the Havana by the Spanish
schooner Manuclita of which 1 have the honor to transmit
to you a translation.
The 212 negroes were put on board this vessel at the
Havana on the 16th January last of whom five died on the
passage and one since the arrival of the Manuelita the
remainder are apparently in good health.
Applications for their services have already commenced
to pour in.
The vessel has been placed in quarantine for one week,
at the expiration of that time I will dispose of them pursuant
to instructions and report every particular by next packet.
I have the honor to be,
Your most obedient, humble Servant,
The Right Honourable (Sgd.) G. F. HILL.
