Summary.
Count Dillon introduces Mr Petrie to the Marshal
as the Representative of the People of Tobago.
Mr Petrie is instructed to inform le Duc de Cas-
tries that the Governor, le Vicomte D'Arrot, and the
Ordonnateur, Monsieur Delorme, have expropriated from
the Planters and resumed into the Royal Domaine, on
the 7th January and the 2nd February, a large quant-
ity of land.
This action of the authorities has caused much
disturbance and anxiety. The Planters maintain that
these expropriations were done arbitrarily and that
many were despoiled who were quite prepared to pay
for and cultivate, their, at that time, unused lands.
The Planters have sent Mr Petrie to report these
arbitrary and illegal actions of the authorities, to le
Duc de Castries and to pray for justice from His Maj-
esty, the King.


Dillon.
