DescriptionLetter (duplicate) from Francis Grant, Jamaica to Charles Gordon, prefixed to MS 1160/6/81/2. Bills received from Gordon’s debtors in Jamaica if honoured will go towards paying for ten negroes just purchased; these are ‘popoes’ or ‘papaws’. Second letter is also from Grant and addressed from Trelawny, Georgia: all is well on estate and island as yet. Military reinforcements have arrived from Nova Scotia. Crop prospects are favourable in spite of possibility of outbreak of smallpox among negroes.
