DOWNING STREET.
February l4t 1802.
SIR
It being the intention of the Agent for the Captors of the
Island of Curacoa to remove from thence to the Island of
Trinidad, the Negros captured by them formerly the property
of the Dutch Government, a person has been deputed duly
authorised to carry this intention into effect and they will be
embarked on board the De Ruyter, an armed transport,
hired for the service.
An agreement has been entered into with the agent
for the Captors that on their arrival in Trinidad they are
to be employed on such public works and services as you
shall think proper to direct. In consideration of this, they
are to be fed and clothed by the Government until you
shall receive further instructions from me.
You will therefore carry this agreement into effect and
take care that the Negros are on their arrival received and
treated in such a manner as shall be most calculated to
reconcile them to the change of abode and masters.

I have etc.


HOBART.
