MISCELLANEOUS.
No. 4.
TRINIDAD,
20th July, 1834.
SIR,
I have the honor to report to you that on the i5th instant
the British Schooner Watchful arrived at this Port from
Fayal (Azores) with 44 of the natives of that place by previous
engagement on the following terms.
To work by Indenture as laborers in the field or in any
manner most advantageous to the Employer for a period of
three years in return for which they are to receive six dollars
per month wages a piece of land for their own use and
cultivation and to be provisioned like a Negro until their
lands are productive-one half of the wages are to be retained
by the Employer until he is repaid the amount of passage
money advanced by him in the first instance, namely Sixty
dollars per head.
They have been accordingly taken as Apprentices by
some of the Planters.
These people have been accustomed to work in the field
in their own climate and will be able to withstand the sun
heat here-They are looked upon as a very valuable acquisition
to an Island, such as this, which only requires a sufficient
laboring population to render it the most valuable of His
Majesty's West India Colonies.







2

The Planters are dcsihous of procuring a larger number
and are now subscribing for the purpose of bringing them here.

1 now therefore request to be instructed whether any
objection exists with His Majesty's Government to their
being thus received in this Colony.

I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient, humble Servant,

(Sgd.) G. F. HILL.
The Right Honourable
Thomas Spring Rice,
&c., &c., &c.
