According to the state of the French Island of St
Lucia published by their authority in 1776, it contain-
ed upwards of 2000 whites, male and female, 1000 free
negroes and mulattoes and about 16,000 black slaves;
44 sugar estates and over 800 small cacao, coffee and
cotton plantations.
It has however within the last year, considerably
declined; the crops by no means answering the expect-
ations of the proprietors, many of whom have migrated
to the Spanish Island of Trinidad where the soil is be-
lieved to be uncommonly fertile and where vast encour-
agement is offered to the new settler.
I have the honour to be, My Lord,
Your Lordship's
Most humble and most obedient servant
Macartney.
Lord George Germain.
Secretary of State.
