Rouyer, Louis Memoire Et Observations Sur Le Commerce des Isles françoises de La Merique Envoyé a Mr. de Verdun par Le Sr. Louis Rouyer du Cap françois Le 29. Juillet 1743. -- -- "Pour faire Le Commerce de cette colonie avec avantage il faut avoir pour objet d'y consacrer un fond d'Environ 4. a 500/m.# argent de france..."A memoire on commerce, with a long comment on the slave trade. Rouyer, merchant and sea captain, was trying to raise capital to buy two ships, one to load in Le Havre with cloth, lace, Irish oxen, and English flour; the other to load at Marseille with wines, flour, oil, silks, and possibly cargo from Nantes. A third ship could be used for trade in mules "...et sur lequel il y a plus de bénefice quand on a le bonheur de réussir... le commerce de Guynée... où l'on est quelquefois obligé d'en tuer plusieurs avant que d'en pouvoir ître les maîtres." Rouyer suggests Cap François as a good base, since considerable commerce is done there with the Spanish, who pay better., Original digital object name: bei-m083b, This digital resource is provided by the Special Collections, Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, United States.
