Island of Trinidad.
4th September 1790.
Most Excellent Sir
I have the pleasure to communicate to Your Excel-
lency that the custom of acknowledging and declaring
for free in this Island, the fugitive slaves from the o-
ther Antilles, has ceased according to the directions
given to me in a Royal Cedula which I have received
dated at Aranjuez on the 17th May last.

As His Majesty's intention is to stop the flight of
negroes from that and other Islands who come to this
Government to enjoy their freedom, I thought proper
(exclusive of the publication which I ordered the 28th
August last) to acquaint Your Excellency of these cir-
cumstances.

Thus being informed in your government that fug-
itive slaves can have no manner of protection here,
they may abstain from running away from their masters;
to whom, such as henceforth may come here, they will
be returned in case they are reclaimed and the proper-








2

ty thereof regularly proved.

I hope for occasions to show Your Excellency the
honour of being, Most Excellent Sir,
Your Excellency's
Most attentive and respectful servant
Josef Maria Chacon.
His Excellency
Edward Matthews.
Governor General of Grenada.
