25. The attempt of settling St. Lucia (esteemed the best
of the Islands under the government of the Governor of
Barbados) proving so fatal in the time of Lord Francis and
Lord William Willoughby where most of the men died that
went to settle it by reason of the sickliness of the Island, has
wholly discouraged all people fi-om endeavouring the settlement
thereof nor have any attempted to settle St. Vincents or
Dominico for the aforesaid reason and their being exceedingly
infested with Indians.
The subjects of the Duke of Courland have lately begun
some settlement on the Island of Tobago but were not strong
enough to resist the Indians who with the French amongst
them, as wild and as savage as themselves, often assaulted
those late settlers, killed several of them and forced them to
desert the Island. They were brought up hither to seek
passage to England whither they embarked some time since.
