St. Davids Jamaica 1801

Interesting three page letter from a W. Sutherland of Greenwall, St. Davids in Jamaica dated 30 September 1801 to a business associate in London dealing with his sugar estate and a bumper crop. Much of the letter on an indentured blacksmith, Morgan Jones, and how when his indenture was up, he settled at Morant Bay and "took to drinking and of course lost his health..."
