Memoire de Mr. De La Croix Intendant des Isles du Vent de l'Amérique …
Memoire de Mr. De La Croix Intendant des Isles du Vent de L'Amérique."...De tous les Intendans qui m'ont precedé, je ne pense pas qu'aucun ait eû une administration aussy épineuse que la mienne. J'ay trouvé en arrivant au mois de Mars 1738. la Caisse Sans argent..." La Croix defends himself to Maurepas: Lack of money and ammunition, damage by fire, and a smallpox epidemic have made for poor conditions in Martinique; there were hurricanes in Guadeloupe and Mariegalante in 1738 and 1740, a British invasion was feared, and because Irish oxen were no longer imported there was a general dearth of food. After retailing his handling of all these problems he also defends his wife who has been accused of conducting a lucrative business and of being stingy. Postscript, dated 11 March 1741, states that an extra-ordinary tax is being levied on all inhabitants., Original digital object name: bei-m076a, This digital resource is provided by the Special Collections, Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, United States.
