An Jt.flay on Slavery,
Defined to exnibii in a ne'w point ol view
in effects on mm alt, mtlujiry, and the peace of

to prove the labor olj/ceinen to be much more
produflive than that ot fia,vcs ; that countries are
rich, powerlui and happy, i n proportion as the
laboring people enjoy the truus of their own

lt// Urg ' atc(i F° rt independence, St.
Mary's, April z, 1794.
While I was in the upper parts of
t, Georgia, I wrote you several times ; but
the great revolution that has taken place,
and the much greater that's likely to take
place in Florida, and this country, caused
me to come here from the town of Waflv
J. '"S 10 "' I have resided these fix
months past, but am not allowed to land
•- ° nt othcr of the river, without
e being sent immediately to St. Augustine,
s and confined ; I make no doubt but you
" have b s f " r , e thi »> heard of the confine- ,
t' M.| t , / , Kr n Hamm °" d ' Colonel John
- p nt . ofh ' J■ P- Wagnon, my Father,
• ? apt A n n" g ' a " d Wil,iam Plowden, in
, !>t. Augustine, on suspicion of carrying
• on a clandcftme correfpondcnce with a par
ty ot Georgians, who are about to ion. the
French again ft Florida; Hammond and
M Intofti, are in the Moro Castle in the
■Havannah; are allowed eight bints per
day for their support, as well as the pri
vilege of the fort ; the whole of the
others are in St. Augustine, and allowed
a room in the barracks; and my father
has been allowed to write out to the fa
mily.—A few days ago, the Florida
lcout, came opposite Temple, and played
us Malbrook on the French Horn : My
brother Billey was along with them, who
informed me, that Mr. Queen, was about
to write to me to invoke me not toioin the
trench ; and also, desired me to inform
you of the fame circumitance, viz. if ei
ther of us did so, my father's property
would be forfeited ; however the business
is now carried too far to uetra£L The
burnt aH-their hoflfes be
tw-een St John's and St. Man's, with .
out diftinftion, and there is upwards of
twenty families moved on this fide of the
river, who are fettled on Merit's Bluff a
mile below Temple. Billy informed
- that Colonel Howard had 26 cannon at
the Cowford, and was building a Block- '
house at Trout Creek : They have sent
f f era , vessels fr om Cuba, with men for
, Augustine, the moll of which have been
taken by the French. We have about fif
ty men at this station, with a large store
of provisions, and exped Colonel S. Ham
mond on in ten days, when we expect
lomething capital may terminate.
1 lie lpiiit of party work since your de
parture from this country, has been ex
treme ; numbers have been killed, the
laws openly violated and trampled on, and
what is to be more lameuted, those viola
tions have been committed by those per
forms wno have been appointed by our le
gislators todillnbute jultice& thebencfit of
our laws to the people.
Squire Flemming, John Houston, and
a number of others, have been killed by
the Indians. A few days ago, thev kil
led a woman at Coleraine Fort, a few
miles above us ; in short we have been in
a continual state of war ever since you left
this country, and now it has got to* a high
er pitch than ever ; our fort is in a man
ner surrounded by enemies, the Indians
on one fide, the Spaniards 011 the other
and the deluded people under the directi
on of- J- Seagrove and old King, on the
other two ; but we flatter ourselves we
have fortitude enough to carry ourselves
| late through the impending dangers."
