Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

COMPILER'S PREFACE TO VOLUME IIL 



Unlike the founders of most of the other British colonies in America, 
the founders of Georgia were actuated by motives of pure, disinterested 
philanthropy. The object of the founders of other colonies was pecu- 
niary gain. The object of the founders of Georgia was to provide an 
asylum to which the poor and unfortunate debtors of England, and the 
oppressed Protestants in other parts of Europe, could come and live in 
peace and earn a livelihood by industry and frugality. 

Actuated by this motive Oglethorpe and Egmont, and their coadjutors, 
founded Georgia. They had no interest in the soil of the province, and 
no reward, nor hope of reward, out of its growth and prosperity. 

Their work being one purely of philanthropy they appealed not in 
vain to the charitably disposed for aid in their philanthropic work. Thb 
the Trustees were authorized to do, by the charter, and by the same 
instrument they were required ''every year to lay an account in writing 
before the Chancellor or Speaker or Commissioners for the custody of 
the Great Seal of Great Britain, the Chief Justice of the Court of 
King's Bench, the Master of the Rolls, the Chief Justice of the Court 
of Common Pleas and the Chief Baron of the Exchequer, or any two 
of them, of all monies and effects by them received or expended for 
carrying on the good purposes aforesaid." 

This volume contains the annual accounts of all contributions made 
in money and effects for the benefit of the colonists. It will be seen 
that while no inconsiderable amount came out of the royal treasury most 
of the benefactions were from private individuals, and the accounts 
show on their face the care and accuracy with which they were kept.

FROM ITS FIRST ESTABUSHMENT. 



HIS Majesty Kiog Oeorge the Second, by his Letters Patent, bear- 
ing Date the Ninth Day of June One thousand Seven hundred and 
Thirty-two, reciting amongst other things. That many of his poor 
Subjects were, through Misfortunes, and want of Employment, reduced 
to great Necessities, and would be glad to be settled in any of his Maj- 
esty's Provinces in America, where, by cultivating the Lands waste and 
desolate, they might not only gain a comfortable Subsistence, but also 
strengthen his Majesty's Colonies, and increase the Trade, Navigation 
and Wealth of his Majesty's Realms ; and that the Provinces in North 
America had been frequently ravaged by Indian Enemies, more espe- 
cially that of South Carolina, whose Southern Frontier continued 
unsettled, and lay open to the neighbouring Savages; and that to 
relieve the Wants of the said poor People, and to protect his Majesty's 
Subjects in South Carolina, a regular Colony of the said poor People 
should be settled and established in the Southern Frontier of Carolina ; 
did, for the Considerations aforesaid, constitute a Corporation by the 
Name of, The Trustees for establbhing the Colony of Oeorgia in Amer- 
ica, with Capacity to purchase and take Lands, to sue and to be sued, to 
have a common Seal, and to chuse Members of the said Corporation on 
the Third Thursday in March yearly, with restraining Clauses, that no 
Member of the said Corporation should have any Salary, Fee, Per- 
quisite, Benefit, or Profit whatsoever, for acting therein, or have any 
0£Sce, Place or Employment of Profit under the said Corporation, with 
a Direction for the said Corporation ev^ry Year to lay an Account in 
Writing before the Lord Chancellor, Chief Justice of the King's-Bench,

Master of the Rolls, Chief Justice of the CommoQ-Pleas, and Chief 
Baron of the Exchequer, or any Two of them, of all Moneys or Eflects 
by them received or expended for carrying on the good Purposes 
aforesaid, with a Power to make Bye-Laws, Constitutions, Orders and 
Ordinances : And granted, amongst other Things, to the said Corpo- 
ration, and their Successors, under the Reservations therein mentioned, 
Seven undivided Parts (the Whole into Eight equal Parts to be 
divided) of all those Lands, Countries and Territories, situate, lying 
and being in that Part of South Carolina in America, wh'ch lies from 
the most Northern Stream of a River there, commonly called the 
Savannah, all along the Sea-coast to the Southward unto the most 
Southern Stream of a certain other great Water or River, called the 
Alatamaha, and Westward from the Heads of the said Rivers respec- 
tively, in direct Lines to the South-Seas, To have and to hold the same, 
to them the said Corporation, and their Successors for ever, for the 
better Support of the said Colony, under the yearly Rent of Four 
Shillings Proclamation Money of South Carolina for every Hundred 
Acres of the said Lands for ever, which the said Corporation should 
grant, demise, plant or settle, but not to commence until Ten Tears 
after such Grant, Demise, Planting or Settling : And erected and cre- 
ated the said Lands, Countries and Territories into one independent and 
separate Province, by the Name of GEORGIA; and made the In- 
habitants, who should reside therein, free, and not subject to any the 
Lawp, Orders, Statutes or Constitutions of South Carolina, except the 
Commander in Chief of the Militia ; and authorized the said Corpora- 
tion for the Term of Twenty-one Years from the Date of the said Let- 
ters Patent, to form and prepare Laws, Statutes and Ordinances for the 
Government of the said Colony, not repugnant to the Laws and Stat- 
utes of England, to be presented under their common Seal to his 
Majesty in Council for his Approbation or Disallowance, and that the 
said Laws, so approved of, should be in full Force and Virtue within 
the said Province : And impowered the Common Council for the Time 
being of the said Corporation, or the major Part of them, to dispose of, 
expend and apply all the Moneys and Effects belonging to the said Cor- 
poration, and to make Contracts fv r carrying on and effecting the good 
Purposes therein intended; and that they should from time to time 
appoint a Treasurer, Secretary, and such other Officers, Ministers and 
Servants of the said Corporation, as they should see proper, for the good 
Management of their Affairs, and at their Pleasure to remove them, and 
appoint others in their stead ; and that they should appoint reasonable 
."-.i'aries, Perquisites, or other Rewards, for their Labour or Services; 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 371 

and that such Officers should be sworn, before they act, for the faithful 
and due Execution of their respective Offices and Places; and declared, 
that the Treasurer and Secretary for the Time being should be incapable 
of being Members of the said Corporation ; and granted to the said 
Corporation that it should be lawful for them, their Officers or Agents, 
to transport and convey into the said Province, such of his Majesty's 
Subjects and Foreigners, as were willing to go, and inhabit and reside 
there ; and declared all Persons born within the said Province, and 
their Children and Posterity, to be free Denizens, as if they had been 
born within any of his Majesty's Dominions : And impowered the said 
Common Council, in the Name of the Corporation, and under their 
common Seal, to distribute, convey, assign and set over such particular 
Portions of the said Lands, Tenements, and Hereditaments, unto such 
of his Majesty's Subjects, and others willing to live in the said Colony, 
upon such Terms, and for such Estates, and upon such Rents, Reserva- 
tions and Conditions, as the same might lawfully be granted, and as to 
the said Common Council, or the major Part ctf them, should seem fit 
and proper ; provided that no Grant should be made of any Part of the 
said Lands unto, or in Trust for, or for the Benefit of any Member of 
the said Corporation, and that no greater Quantity of the said Land be 
granted either entirely, or in Parcels, to, or to the Use of, or in Trust 
for any one Person, than Five hundred Acres; and declared that all 
Grants made contrary to the true Intent and Meaning thereof, should 
be absolutely null and void: And granted that the said Corporation, 
for the Term ot Twenty-one Years from the Date of the said Letters 
Patent, should have Power to erect and constitute Judicatures and 
Courts of Record, or other Courts to be held in his Majesty's Name, for 
the hearing and determining of all manner of Crimes, Offences, Pleas, 
Processes, Plaints, Actions, Matters, Causes, and Things whatsoever 
arising or happening within the said Province, or between Persons 
inhabiting or residing there, and for awarding and making out Exe- 
cutions thereupon ; and directed the said Corporation to register, or 
cause to be registred, all Leases, Grants, Plantings, Conveyances, Set- 
tlements and Improvements whatsoever, as should at any time be made 
ot any Lands, Tenements or Hereditaments within the said Province, 
imd yearly to transmit authentick Accounts thereof unto the Auditor 
oi the Plantations, or his Deputy, and to the Surveyor of South Caro- 
lina, to inspect and survey the same, to ascertain the Quit-rents which 
should become due, according to the Reservation before-mentioned; but 
not to have or take any Gratuity, Fee or Reward, for such Survey or 
Inspection, on Forfeiture of their Office; with a Proviso, that all 



S72 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

Leases, Grants and Conveyances to be made of any Lands within the 
said Province, or a Memorial containing the Substance or Effect there- 
of, should be registred with the Auditor of the Plantations within One 
Year from the Date thereof, otherwise that the same should be void : 
And directed, That all Rents, Issues or Profits, which should come to 
the said Corporation, issuing or arising out of or from the said Province,, 
should be laid out and applied in such manner as would most improve 
and inlarge the said Colony, and best answer the good Purposes therein 
mentioned, and for defraying all other Charges about the same ; and 
directed the said Corporation, from time to time, to give in to one of 
the Secretaries of State, and to the Commissioners of Trade and Planta- 
tions, Accounts of the Progress of the said Colony : And directed that 
the said Common Council should, from time to time, for the said Term, 
of Twenty-one Years, from the Date of the said Letters Patent, have 
Power to appoint all such Governors, Xudges, Magistrates, Ministers, and 
Officers Civil and Military, both by Sea and Land, within the said Dis- 
trict, as they should thiuk fit and needful for the Government of ihe 
said Colony, (except such Officers as should be appointed for managing, 
collecting and receiving, such of his Majesty's Revenues as should arise 
within the said Province) with a Proviso, that every Governor so 
appointed should be approved by his Majesty, and qualify himself as 
other Governors in America are by Law required to do, and give Se- 
curity for observing the Acts of Parliament relating to Trade and Navi- 
gation, and obeying all Instructions from his Majesty, or any acting 
under his Authority, pursuant to the said Acts : And granted that the 
said Corporation, for the said Term of Twenty-one Years, from the Date 
of the said Letters Patent, should have Power, by any Commander, or 
other Officer for that Purpose appointed, to train, instruct, exercise and 
govern, a Militia, for the special Defence and Safety of the said Colony, 
to assemble in martial Array, and put in warlike Posture the Inhabi- 
tants of the said Colony, and in Time of actual War, Invasion or 
Rebellion, to use and exercise the Law Martial ; and also to erect~7orts, 
and fortify any Place or Places within the said Colony, and the same 
to furnish with all necessary Ammunition, Provision, and Stores of War,, 
for Offence and Defence ; and, from time to time, to commit the Onstody 
and Government of them to such Person or Persons as to them should 
seem meet; declaring that the Governor or Commander in chief of South. 
Carolina, should have the chief Command of the Militia of Georgia, and 
that they should observe his Orders ; and granted that the said Cor- 
poration should have Power to import and export their Goods, at and 
from any Port or Ports, that should be appointed by his Majesty within. 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 373 

the said ProviDce for that Purpose, without being obliged to touch at 
any other Port in Carolina ; and declared, That after the End of the 
said Twenty-one Years, such Form of Government, and Method of 
making Laws, Statutes and Ordinances, for the Oovernment of the 
flaid Province, and its Inhabitants, should be established and observed 
within the same, as his Majesty, his Heirs or Successors, should ordain 
and appoint, and should be agreeable to Law ; and that after the End 
of the said Twenty-one Years, the Governor, and all Officers Civil and 
Military, within the said Province, should be appointed by his Majesty, 
his Heirs and Successors. 

In pursuance of his Majesty's Charter, and in order to fulfil the good 
Intents and Purposes therein expressed, it was thought necessary for the 
Trustees to send over such poor People, and foreign Protestants, as were 
willing to live in Georgia, not only to cultivate the Lands, but at the same 
time to strengthen his Majesty's Colonies. For which Purposes they con- 
sidered each Inhabitant, both as a Planter and as a Soldier ; and they were 
therefore to be provided with Arms for their Defence, as well as Tools 
for their Cultivation, and to be taught the Exercise of both ; and Towns 
were to be laid out for their Settlements, and Lands alloted to each of 
them for their Maintainance, as near to those Towns as conveniently could 
be, that they might never have Occasion to be too far distant from their 
Towns, which were to be regarded as their Gtirisons. 
*^( And as the Military Strengh of the Province was particularly to be 
taken care of; it seemed necessary to establbh such Tenures of Lands, as 
might most effectually preserve the Number of Lots of Land ; and there- 
fore each Lot ot Land was to be considered as a military Fief, and to 
contain so much in Quantity as would support such Planter, and his 
Family ; and Fifty Acres were judged sufficient, and not too much, for 
that Purpose : And Provision was made to prevent an Accumulation of 
several Lots into one Hand, lest the Garison should be lessened ; and 
likewise to prevent a Division of those Lots into smaller Parcels, lest 
that, which was no more than sufficient for one Planter when intire, 
should, if divided among several, be too scanty for their Subsistence. 

And in the Infancy of the Colony, the Lands were granted in Tail 
Male, preferable to any other Tenure, as the most likely to answer these 
Purposes ; for if the Grants were to have been made in Tail General, it 
was thought, that the Strength of each Township would soon be dimin- 
ished, in as much as every Female Heir in Tail, who was unmarried, 
would have been intitled to one Lot, ami consequently have taken from 
the Gbrison the Portion of one Soldier yand by Intermarriages several 
Lots might be united into one ; and if such Tenant in Tail General had 



374 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

had several Daughters, his Lot must have been divided equally amongst 
them all as Co-parceners. 

Nor were these the only Inconveniencies, which were thought likely to 
arise from Estates in Tail Oeneral ; for Women being equally incapable 
to serve on Juries as to act as Soldiers, these Duties, and many others, 
such as Watching and Warding <&c. would return so much oftener to 
each Man in Proportion as the Number of the Men in the Township was 
lessened ; and by that means would become very burthensome to the re- 
maining Male Lot- holders; and in case of any Attack from the Indians, 
French or Spaniards the Township would be less able to make a Defence. 

And as it was not thought proper to grant Estates in Tail General, it 
appeared to be more inconvenient to grant them in Fee-simple; which 
Estate would have been attended with all the Objections before-men- 
tioned incident to Estates in Tail General, and to several others besides ; 
for the Right of Alienation being inseparable from an Estate in Fee, the 
Grantee might have sold, mortgaged or aliened his Lands, to whomever 
he thought fit ; which was a Power not to be trusted with the People sent 
over, for the following Reasons : 

I. From considering their Condition. 

II. From considering the Purposes they were sent for. 

III. From considering the Persons, to whom Lands might be alien- 
anted. And, 

IV. From considering, that it might occasion a Monopoly of I^and, 
contrary to the Intent of the Charter. 

As to the First : The Persons sent over were poor indigent People, 
who had for the most part so indiscreetly managed what they had been 
Masters of here, that it did not seem safe to trust so absolute a Property 
in their Hands, at least in the Infancy of the Colony, and before they 
had, by a careful and industrious Behaviour, given some Reason to 
believe, they would prove better Managers for the future. 

As to the Second : They were sent over to inhabit, cultivate and secure, 
by a personal Residence, the Lands granted to them within the Province ; 
and they voluntarily engaged so to do ; and in Expectation that they 
would perform those Engagements, they were maintained at the Expence 
of the Publick, during their Voyage, and their Passage was paid for 
them ; and they were provided with Tools, Arms, Seeds, and other Nec- 
essaries, and supported from the public Store, many of them at least, for 
Four Years together, from their first Landing ; in which respect, the 
Publick may be said to have purchased of these People for a valuable 
Consideration, their personal Residence, and all the Industry and Labour 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 375 

they could bestow in the Cultivation of this Province, and to have given 
them even Pay for the Hazard thev might run in the Defence of it. 

As to the Third : It was thought unsafe to grant them such an E-'tate, 
as might be the very Means of introducing such Sorts of People, as 
might defeat what the Trustees had always at Heart ; viz. the Preserva- 
tion of the Protestant Religion in that Province ; which was necessary to 
be taken care of, both on a Political and Religious Account ; the French 
lying to the West, and the Spaniards to the South of the Province of 
Georgia. 

As to the Fourth : A Monopoly of many Lots into one Hand, would 
necessarily have been the Consequence of a free Liberty of buying and 
selling Lands within the Province; which would have been directly con- 
trary to the Intent of the Charter, whereby the Grant of Lands to any 
one Person is limited not to exceed Five hundred Acres. 

A further Inconvenience seemed likely to arise in every Case where 
the Tenant in Fee died without any Children, or without having disposed 
of his Lot by Will; lor the Heir General, who might have the Right 
to it, might not happen to be found out for many Years after, especially 
if it was one of the Foreign Protestants ; and all that Time the House 
would have run to Decay, and the Land remain uncultivated, and become 
a Harbour for Vermin, to the great Annoyance and Damage of the 
neighbouring Lots. 

But tho' the before-mentioned Restraints were intended for the Good 
of the Whole, yet, whenever particular Cases required it, they were 
taken off, or dispensed with : And upon any Application for Leave to 
alienate Lands, Licences were always granted for that Purpose ; and 
when the Succession of Females became less dangerous to the Province, 
by the growing Strength and Increase of the People, and by the Security 
provided for it by his Majesty's Forces there, the Trustees resolved to 
inlarge the Tenures of the Lands to Estates in Tail General. 

The Tenures being thus settled, it was thought necessary to require the 
Inhabitants to cultivate their Lands within a limited Time ; and in order 
to raise raw Silk, which was intended to be one of the Produces there, a 
certain Proportion of white Mulberry- trees were to be planted: And in 
their respective Grants Ten Years were allowed for the Cultivation, and 
One hundred white Mulberry-trees were to be planted on every Ten Acres 
of Land, when cleared ; with a Power for the Trustees to reenter on the 
Parts that should remain uncultivated. 

But as the People were not able to cultivate their Lands within the 
Time required by their Grants, by reason of the Alarms from the Span- 
iards, the Droughts in that Part of America, and other unforeseen Acci- 



376 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

dents ; the Trustees resolved to release all Forfeitures on that Account, 
and to require the Cultivation of no more than Five Acres of the said 
Fifty Acres, within the Remainder of the said Term of Ten Tears. 

And as other Persons applied to the Trustees for Orants of Land, in 
order to go over, and settle there at their own Expence ; particular Orants 
were made under the same Tenure, and on the following Conditions: Viz. 
That they should within Twelve Months, from the Date of their Orants, 
go to and arrive in Georgia, with one Man-servant for every Fifty Acres 
granted them, and should with such Servants abide, settle, inhabit, and 
continue there for Three Years: That they should within Ten Years 
clear and cultivate one Fifth Part of the Lands granted them, and 
within the next Ten Years clear and cultivate Three Fifth Parts more of 
the said Lands, and plant One thousand white Mulberry-trees, upon every 
One hundred Acres thereof, when cleared ; and that they should not at 
any time hire, keep, lodge, board or employ, any Negroes within Georgia 
on any Account whatsoever, without special Leave. Which Conditions 
were readily approved of, and Counterparts executed by them all ; and 
to tho8e, who desired to name their Successor, on Failure of Issue Male, 
special Covenants were entered into by the Trustees for that Purpose, 
agreeable to their own Propositions. And for an Encouragement to 
their Men-servants to behave well, like Covenants were entered into, to 
grant every such Man-servant, when requested thereunto, by any Writing, 
under the Hand and Seal of the Master, Twenty Acres of Land under 
the same Tenure. 

The Trustees were induced to prohibit the Use of Negroes within Geor- 
gia ; the Intention of his Majesty's Charter being to provide for poor 
People incapable of subsisting themselves at home, and to settle a Fron- 
tier for South Carolina, which was much exposed by the small Number of 
its white Inhabitants. It was impossible that the Poor, who should be 
sent from hence, and the Foreign persecuted Protestants, who must go 
in a manner naked into the Colony, could be able to purchase or subsist 
them, if they had them ; and it would be a Charge too great for the Trus- 
tees to undertake ; and they would be thereby disabled from sending 
white People. The first Cost of a Negro is about Thirty Pounds ; and 
this Thirty Pounds would pay the Passage over, provide Tools and other 
Necessaries, and defray the Charge of Subsistence of a white Man for a 
Year ; in which Time it might be hoped that the Planter's own Labour 
would gain him some Subsistence ; consequently the Purchase-money of 
every Negro, (abstracting the Expence of subsisting him, as well as his 
Master) by being applied that way, would prevent the sending over a 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 377 

-white Man, who would be of Security to the Province ; whereas the 
Negro would render that Security precarious. 

It was thought, that the white Man, by having a Negro Slave, would 
lye less disposed to labour himself; and that his whole Time must be em- 
ployed in keeping the Negro to Work, and in watching against any Dan- 
ger he or his Family might apprehend from the Slave ; and that the 
Planter's Wife and Children would by the Death, or even the Absence 
of the Planter, be in a manner at the Mercy of the Negro. 

It was also apprehended, that the Spaniards at St. Augustine, would be 
•continualbjT inticing away the Negroes, or encouraging them to Insurrec- 
tions; that the first might easily be accomplished, since a single Negro 
could run away thither without Companions, and would only have a 
Biver or two to swim over ; and this Opinion has been confirmed and 
justified by the Practices of the Spaniards, even in Time of profound 
Peace, amongst the Negroes in South Carolina ; where, tho' at a greater 
Distance from Augustine, some have fled in Perriaguas and little Boats 
to the Spaniards, and been protected, and others in large Bodies have 
been incited to Insurrections, to the great Terror, and even endangering 
the Loss of that Province ; which though it has been established above 
Seventy Years, has scarce white People enough to secure her against her 
own Slaves. 

It was also considered, that the Produces designed to be raised in the 
Colony would not require such Labour as to make Negroes necessary for 
carrying them on ; for the Province of Carolina produces chiefiy Bice, 
which is Work of Hardship proper ior Negroes ; whereas the Silk and 
other Produces which the Trustees proposed to have the People employed 
on in Georgia, were such as Women and Children might be of as much 
Use in as Negroes. 

It was likewise apprehended, that if the Persons who should go over 
to Georgia at their own Ezpence, should be permitted the Use of Negroes, 
it would dispirit and ruin the poor Planters who could not get them, and 
who by their Numbers were designed to be the Strength of the Province ; 
it would make them clamorous to have Negroes given them ; and on the 
Befusal, would drive them from the Province, or at least make them 
negligent of their Plantations ; where they would be unwilling, nay would 
oertainly disdain to work like Negroes ; and would rather let themselves 
out to the wealthy Planters as Overseers of their Negroes. 

It was further thought. That upon the Admission of Negroes the 
wealthy Planters would, as in all other Colonies, be more induced to 
absent themselves, and live in other Places, leaving the care of their Plan- 
tations and their Negroes to Overseers.

It was likewise thought, that the poor Planter sent on Charity from 
his Desire to have Negroes, as well as the Planter who should settle at 
his own Expence, would (if he had Leave to alienate) mortgage his Land 
to the Negro Merchant for them, or at least become a Debtor for the Pur- 
chase of such Negroes ; and under these Weights and Discouragements 
would be induced to sell his Slaves again upon any Necessity, and would 
leave the Province and his Lot to the Negro Merchant ; in Consequence 
of which, all the small Properties would be swallowed up, as they have 
been in other Places, by the more wealthy Planters. 

It was likewise considered, that the admitting of Negroes in Oeorgia 
would naturally facilitate the Desertion of the Carolina Negroes, thro' the 
Province of Georgia ; and consequently this Colony, instead of proving a 
Frontier, and adding a Strength to the Province of South Carolina, would 
be a Means of drawing off the Slaves of Carolina, and adding thereby a 
Strength to Augustine. 

From these several Considerations, as the Produces to be raised in the 
Colony did not make Negro Slaves necessary, as the Introduction of them 
so near to a Oarison of the Spaniards would weaken rather than strengthen 
the Barrier, and as they would introduce with them a greater Propensity 
to Idleness among the poor Planters, and too great an Inequality among 
the People, it was thought proper to make the Prohibition of them a 
JPundamental of the Constitution. 

When the Trustees had made these Dispositions, and were enabled by 
Benefactions from several private Persons, on the 3d of October, 1732. it 
was resolved to send over One hundred and Fourteen Persons, Men, 
Women and Children ; being such as were in decayed Circumstances, aud 
thereby disabled from following any Business in England ; and who, if 
in Debt, had Leave from their Creditors to go, and such as were recom- 
mended by the Minister, Church- Wardens, and Overseers of their respec- 
tive Parishes. And James Oglethorpe, Esq; one the Trustees, went with 
them at his own Expence to settle them. 

On the 24th of the same Month the People were all examined, whether 
any of them had any Objections to the Terms and Conditions proposed 
to them ; which they all declared they had not, but that they were fully 
satisfied with them ; and executed Articles under their Hands and Seals, 
testifying their Consents thereto ; which are now in the publick Office 
belonging to the Trustees. 

But Four of them desiring, that their Daughters might inherit as 
well as Sons, and that the Widow *s Dower might be comiidered ; the 
Trustees immediately resolved. That every Person who should desire 
the same, should have the Privilege of naming a Successor to the Lands 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 379 

granted to them ; who, in case the Possessors should die without Issue 
Male, should hold the same to them and their Heirs Male for ever ; and 
that the Widows should have their Thirds as in England : With which 
Resolutions the People being all acquainted, were very well satisfied. 

The Trustees prepared Forms of Government, agreeable to the Pow- 
ers given them by the Charter ; they established under their Seal a 
Court of Judicature for trying Causes, as well Ciirainal as Civil, in the 
Town of Savannah, (the Name which was given to the first Town to be 
raised) by the Name and Style of The Town Court ; they also appointed 
Magistrates there, viz. three Bailiffs and a Recorder, and inferior Offi- 
cers, viz. Two Constables, and Two Tything-men: They chose ior 
Magistrates such as appeared to them the most prudent and discreet ; 
but amongst a Number of People, who were all upon a Level at their 
first setting out, it was impossible to make any Choice or Distinction, 
which would not create some future Uneasiness among them. 

On the 16th of November 1732. when the One hundred and Four- 
teen Persons, and with them the Reverend Mr. Herbert, a Clergyman 
of the Church of Euglund, and a Man from Piedmont, (engaged by the 
Trustees to instruct the People in the Art of winding Silk) embarked 
on board the Ship Ann, Captain Thomas, several of the Trustees went 
to Gravesend, called over the People, and made a strict Inquiry into 
their Accommodations and Provisions, and left the People very well 
satisfied. Soon after Fifteen more Persons were sent, Eleven of whom 
were Sawyers, in order to assist the People in building their Houses. 

At the Time of the Embarkation Five thousand Acres of Land were 
granted to Three of the Colonists, in Trust for them, or the Survivors 
or Survivor of them, to make Grants, from time to time to every Man 
of Twenty-one Years of Age, or upwards, (who should arrive in 
Georgia, aud desire the eame) Fifty Acres of Land, to hold to him and 
his Heirs Male. 

The Common Council of the Trustees (in whom by the Charter the 
Disposal of the Money was lodged) did resolve at their first Meeting, 
that the Bank of England should be desired to keep all the Money 
belonging to the Trust ; which the Bank accepted, and have continued 
so to do, paying no Sums but by Draughts signed by Five of the Com- 
mon Council. 

The Trustees desired, by a Letter, Sir Thomas Lombe's Sentiments 
of the Goodness of the Raw Silk produced in Carolina, and the proper 
Methods of carrying on that Undertaking with Success ; on which they 
received* from Sir Thomas Lombe great Encouragement to proceed in

it, bj his Approbation of the Silk produced in that Climate, of which he 
had made Experiments. 

On the 28th of February 1732. the Trustees received a Letter from 
Mr. Oglethorpe, dated the 13th of January 1732. on board the Ship 
Ann, off Charles-Town in South Carolina, giviog an Account of his 
safe Arrival there with the People, with the Loss only of Two Chil- 
<lren. 

On the 18ih of April 1733. they received another Letter from him, 
which is here inserted at Length, as it gives an Account of the Situation 
where he planted the People. 

From the Camp near Savannah, the 10th of February 173§. 
Gentlemen, 
I Gave you an Account, in my last, of our Arrival at Charles-Town ; 
the Governor and Assembly have given us all possible Encouragement. 
Our People arrived at Beaufort on the 20th of January, where I lodged 
them in some new Barracks built for the Soldiers, whilst I went myself 
to view the Savannah River. I fixed upon a healthy Situation, about 
Ten Miles from the Sea. The River here forms an Halfrmoon, along 
the South side of which the Banks are about Forty Feet high, and on 
the Top a Fiat, which they call a Bluff. The plain High ground ex- 
tends into the Country Five or Six Miles, and along the River-side 
about a Mile. Ships that draw Twelve Feet Water can ride within Ten 
Yards of the Bank. Upon the River-side, in the Centre of this Plain, 
I have laid out the Town, opposite to which is an Island of very rich 
Pasturage, which I think should be kept for the Trustees Cattle. The 
River is pretty wide, the Water fresh, and from the Key of the Town 
you see its whole Course to the Sea, with the Island of Tybee, which 
forms the Mouth of the River, for about Six Miles up into the Country. 
The Landskip is very agreeable, the Stream being wide, and bordered 
with high Woods on both Sides. The whole People arrived here on the 
First of February ; at Night their Tents were got up. Till the 7th we 
were taken up in unloading and making a Crane, which I then could 
not get finished, so took off the Hands, and set some to the Fortifica- 
tion, and began to fell the Woods. I have marked out the Town and 
Common ; half of the former is already cleared, and the first House 
was begun Yesterday in the Afternoon. A little Indian Nation, the 
only one within Fifty Miles, is not only at Amity, but desirous to be 
Subjects to his Majesty King George, to have Lands given them among 
us, and to breed their Children at our Schools. Their Chief and his

structed in the Christian Religion. I am, 

Gentlemen, &c, 

Li this Month of April the Trustees, in another Embarkation of Sev- 
enteen Persons, sent some Italians, whom they had procured from Pied- 
mont, in order to promote the Silk Business. 

They received another Letter from Mr. Oglethorpe, dated the 20th of 
February 1732. of which the following Extract gives a further Account 
of the People and their Situation : 

<* Our People are all in perfect Health. I chose the Situation for the^ 
'' Town upon an high Ground. Forty Feet perpendicular above High- 
'' water Mark ; the Soil dry and sandy, the Water of the River fresh, 
'' Springs coming out from the Side^ of the Hills. I pitched upon this- 
'* Place, not only for the Pleasantness of the Situation, but because from 
*' the above mentioned and other Signs, I thought it healthy ; for it is 
*' sheltered from the Western and Southern Winds (the worst in this 
** Country) by vast Woods of Pine-treea, many of which are an Hun- 
*' dred, and few under Seventy Feet high. There is no Morse on the 
** Trees, tho' in most Parts of Carolina they are covered with it, and it 
'' hangs down Two or I'hree Feet from them. The last and fullest Con- 
'* viction of the Healthfulness of the Place was, that an Indian Nation, 
" who knew the Nature of this Country, chose it for their Situation." 

The Trustees endeavored very early to secure the Friendship of the- 
Indians, who, by ranging thro' the Woods, would be capable of giv- 
ing constant Intelligence, to prevent any Surprise upon the People^ 
and would be a good Out-guard for the Inland Parts of the Province. 
For this Purpose they were treated with all possible Candor and Gentle-* 
ness: They were acquainted, that the English had no Intention to hurt 
or distress them, but would be ready to assist and protect them on all 
Occasions. They received several Presents from the Trustees, and were 
promised, that if any of the People in Georgia injured them, they 
should, upon their Complaints, and Proofs of it, find a ready Redress;, 
for which in Return the Indians engaged never to take any Revenge 
themselves, as it might breed 111 Blood between the English and them. 
And as they since found, that Justice has always been done to them 
upon proper Complaints, they have been true to their Engagements. 

The Indians made a formal and voluntary Cession of that Part of the 
Country to Mr. Oglethorpe for the King of Great-Britain: by which a. 
further Right and Title to it was acquired, and added to that of the first 
Discovery and Cultivation; and a Treaty of Friendship and Commerce* 



382 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

with them was settled, which was soon after sent over to the Trustees 
for their Ratification. 

In the Month of May 1733. the Trustees sent over Six Persons more. 

The Number of People sent on the Charity from the Beginning to the 
dth of June 1733. (on which Day of the Month the Trustees Accompt is 
yearly made up, which is directed to be delivered to the Lord Chancel- 
lor, and the other Persons named in the Charter) amounted to One hun- 
dred and Fifty-two, of whom One hundred and Forty-one were Britons, 
and eleven were Foreign Protestants, and Sixty-one were Men. 

The Lands granted in Trust this Year, in order to be granted out in 
smaller Portions in Georgia, were the aforesaid Five thousand Acres. 

The Lands granted within this Year to Persons going at their own 
Expence, were Four thousand Four hundred and Sixty Acres. 

The Money received from private Persons this Year amounted to 
3,7231. 13 8. 7d. whereof the Trustees applied 2,2541. 17 s. 9d. of 
which they exhibited an Accompt to the Lord Chancellor, and the Lord 
Chief Justice of the Common-Pleas, pursuant to their Charter ; and car- 
ried the Remainder into their succeeding Accompt. 

From the 9Th of June 1733. to the 9TH of June 1734. 

Besides the several Works on which the People were employed at 
Savannah, as palisading the Town, clearing the Place from Pine-trees, 
<fec. and building of Houses, some other Works were carried on ; viz. a 
j>iiblick Garden was laid out, which was designed as a Nursery, in order 
to supply the People for their several Plantations with White Mulberry- 
trees, Vines, Oranges, Olives, and other necessary Plants ; a Gardener 
was appointed for the Care of it, and to be paid by the Trustees. A 
Crane was made for landing of Goods on the Bluff; a Battery raised, which 
commands the River, some Distance below the Town ; and on the Island 
of Tybee, at the Entrance of the River, a Beacon was erected iSinety Feet 
high, which has been of great Service, not only to the Ships entering 
the River Savannah, but to those likewise which sail by the Coast, there 
being none like it all along the Coast of America. 

A Fort was likewise built at the narrow Passages of an inland River 
(culled Ogecchee) in order to protect the Settlement from any inland 
Invasion from Augustine. Two little Villages were laid out and settled 
at about Four Miles distant from Savannah, inland from the River, and 
a Mile from each other, which were called Ilampstead and Higligate.

Account was given of the Settlement at Savannah, which waa written 
by a Gentleman of Charles-Town, who with some others went thither 
out of Curiosity. 

The Parliament having granted out of the Money arisen from the Sale 
of the Lands at St. Christopher, Ten thousand Pounds for the further 
settling and securing the Colony ; the Trustees resolved to lose no Time 
in strengthening it with People; and accordingly in the Months of Sep- 
tember and October 1733. they sent over two Embarkations of Persons, 
whose Numbers are entered at the End of this Year's Proceedings, and 
of whom many were persecuted Protestants from Saltzburg. 

As very pleasing Accounts of the Country, and the Settlement, were 
sent from several of the People there to their Friends, the Trustees were 
informed, that some Persons had gone about in several Parts of England, 
ofTering Money and Land in their Names, (but without their Knowledge 
or Authority) to any who should be desirous of going to Georgia ; There- 
fore they published an Advertisement in some of the News-papers, in 
order to prevent the ill Consequences of drawing laborious People out of 
the Country with such Expectations ; and they declared, that they had 
never given such Power to any Persons whatsoever ; and that they never 
used any Solicitations to induce People to go over.

From the qth of June 1734. to the qth of June 1735. 

In the Month of June 1734. Mr. Oglethorpe arrived from the Colony^ 
and with him came some of the principal Indians of the Lower Creek 
Nation, who live nearest to Savannah. 

When these Indians were in England, they desired of the Trustees, 
that the Measures, Prices and Qualities of all Goods to be purchased by 
them with their Deer-skins, might be settled ; as likewise the Weights, 
that no body might be allowed to trade with the Indians in Oeorgia with- 
out a Licence from the Trustees ; in order that if they were in any re- 
spect injured or defrauded by the Traders, they might know where ta 
complain. And they further desired, that there might be but one Store- 
house in each Indian Town for supplying them with the Goods they 
might want to purchase, from whence the Trader should be obliged to 
supply them at the fixed Prices. 

The reason which the Indians gave for this Application was, because 
the Traders with them had often, in an arbitrary Manner, raised the 
Prices of Goods, and defrauded them in the Weights and Measures ; and, 
by their Impositions, had often created Animosities between the English 
and Indians, which had frequently ended in Wars between them preju- 
dicial to both. 

The Trustees, having considered of their Request, and being informed, 
that the Council and Assembly of South Carolina had passed an Act the 
20th of August 1731. intituled, An Act for the better Regulation of the 
Indian Trade, and for appointing a Commissioner for that Purpose with 
Regulations, which the Trustees hoped might be effectual in Georgia, 
prepared an Act, intituled. An Act for maintaining the Peace with the 
Indians in the Province of Georgia, with the same Regulations and Pro- 
visions as were in the Carolina Act : which Act ceased to be force in 
Georgia, since it was erected into a distinct independent Province, not 
subject to the Laws of Carolina. 

The Trustees, receiving frequent Information from the Colony, of the 
pernicious Effects of drinking Rum, and other spirituous Liquors, by not 
only creating Disorders among the Indians, (who had been plentifuU7 
supplied with it by the Traders) but also destroying many of the English, 
and throwing the People into various Distempers, prepared an Act, in- 
tituled, An Act to prevent the Importation and Use of Rum and Bran- 
dies in the Province of Georgia, or any kind of Spirits or Strong-waters 
whatsoever. At the same time they endeavoured to supply the Stores 
with Strong-beer from England, Melasses for brewing Beer, and with 
Madeira Wines, which the People might purchase at reasonable Bates,. 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 385 

and which would be more refreshing and wholesome for them. The 
Magistrates of the Town of Savannah were likewise impowered to grant 
Licences to private Persons for retailing Beer, Ale, &o, and the Trustees 
have great Reason to believe, that the remarkable Healthiness of Eben- 
ezer in the Northern Part, and Frederica in the Southern Part of Georgia, 
is very much owing to the Prohibition of the Use of Ram ; for in those 
Parts where Rum, in Defiance of the Act, has been introduced, the 
People have not in general been so health j and vigorous. 

At the same time the Trustees, taking into Consideration the many 
Inconveniences which would attend the Introduction of Negroes in a 
Frontier, for the several Reasons before specified, prepared an Act for 
rendering the Colony of Georgia more defensible, by prohibiting the 
Importation and Use of Black Slaves or Negroes into the same. 

These Three Acts were laid before the King in Council, in the Month 
of January 1734. and after a Report from the Lords Commissioners for 
Trade and Plantations to the Committee of Council, that they were 
proper to receive his Majesty's R )yal Approbation, they were ratified 
by his Majesty in Council. 

Tho' the Lands granted by the Trustees were to revert to them on the 
Failure of Issue Male, in order to be regranted for keeping up a Num- 
ber of Men ; yet the Trustees, as Guardians of the People, when any such 
Failure happened, resolved, that the Value of the Improvements upon 
the Lands of the late Occupiers, should be settled and paid to or for the 
Benefit of the Female Issue, or next Relation : And the First Instance of 
such a Failure being on the Death of one Mr. De Ferron, the Value of 
the Improvements he had made on his Estate, was, on the 5th of February 
1734. ordered and paid for the Use of his Daughter in England, who, 
being destitute, would have been absolutely unable to proceed in the 
Cultivation of her Father's Lot. 

Two Embarkations were made this Year, whose Numbers are hereafter- 
mentioned, which consisted chiefly of Saltzburghers, who, with the 
Baltzburghers that went before, were settled in a Town called by them 
Ebenezer, upon the River Savannah, at some Distance above the Town, 
and by the Sobriety and Industry of the People, they prove a very 
thriving Settlement.

The Parliament having in the Year 1735. granted Twenty-six thou- 
sand Pounds for the further settling and securing the Colony of Georgia, 
the Trustees thought it prudent to strengthen the Southern Pare of the 
Province, by making a Settlement on the Alatamaha River, to which 
they were strongly induced, by a fMemorial sent to his Majesty from the 
Governor and Assembly of South Carolina, dated the 9th of April 1734. 
wherein, after thanking his Majesty for his peculiar Favour and Protec- 
tion, and especially for his most benign Care, so wisely calculated for 
the Preservation of South Carolina, by his Royal Charter to the Trustees 
for establishing the Colony of Georgia, and after representing the 
Practices of the French to seduce the Indians in Amity with South 
Carolina, the Attention of the French to the Improvement of their 
.Settlements, and their late Inlargement of them nearer to Carolina ; the 
defenceless Condition of their Province, and the Danger of the Inhabi- 
tants from their own Negroes, and the ruinous Situation of the West- 
India Trade in case the French should possess themselves of Carolina ;

enable his Majesty to be absolute Master of the Passage through the 
Gulph of Florida, and to impede, at his Pleasure, the l^ransportation 
home of the Spanish Treasure, which, should his Majesty's Enemies 
possess, would then prove so many convenient Harbours for them to 
annoy a great Part of the British Trade to America, as well as that which 
is carried on through the Gulph from Jamaica. 

Upon which Inducements the Trustees resolved to make Embarka- 
tions for strengthening the Southern Part of Georgia ; and to obviate 
any Objections which might be made by sending over any of our useful 
Poor from England ; and as the Trustees found, that many of the Poor 
who had been useless in Englaad, were inclined to be useless likewise in 
Georgia, they determined that these Embarkations should consist chiefly 
of Persons from the Higlilands of Scotland, and persecuted German 
Protestants. 

Whilst these Embarkations were preparing, the Trustees made Prepa- 
rations for the new Settlement : They established the civil Government 
for the new Town (which was called Frederica) in the same manner as 
they had before at l^avannah. 

In the Month of January 1735. the Highlanders arrived in Georgia 
(and with them several of the same Country, as Servants to private 
Grantees). They were settled on the Alatamaha River, about Sixteen 
Miles distant by Water from the Island St. Simo/n's (which is at the 
Mouth ot the River). They soon raised convenient Huts, till their 
Houses could be built ; and the Town, at their own Desire, was called 
Darien ; which Name still remains to that District, but the Town is since 
named by them New Inverness. 

On the 6th of February 1735. the Embarkation, under the Conduct 
of Mr. Oglethorpe, arrived in Georgia ; they were settled upon St. 
Simon's Island ; the Town called Frederica was soon laid out, and the 
People were set to work in building their Houses. The Creek Indians, 
who went thither upon occasion of this new Settlement, agreed, That the 
English should possess St. Simon's Island, with the others contiguous to 
it. The Land of the Island is very fertile, chiefly Oak and Hickory, 
intermixed with Savannahs, and old Indian Fields ; and according to a 
Survey made of it, it is about Forty-five Miles in Circumference. 

For a Communication between the Settlements in the Northern and 

pafely Land-looked: And by the ^'Affidavit of Thomas Pe&rce, Mariner, who was on the 
Coast of Georgia near Four Years, It appears That Ships in this Harbour, maj, in Twenty- 
four Hours from the Bar, run out into the Qulph Stream of Florida, through which Stream 
the Spanish Galleons (when not passing the Windward-Passage) always come.

From the 9TH of June 1736. to the qth of June 1737. 

For the Security of the People, (who were settled in the last Year on 
St. Simon's Island) and the Southern Part of the Province, several Forts 
were built this Year; viz. 

One at Frederica, with Four regular Bastioiis, and a Spur-work to- 
wards the River, and several Pieces of Cannon were mounted on it 

About Ten Miles from Frederica a large Battery is built, commanding 
the Entrance into the Sound, where Ten or Twelve Forty-gun Ships may 
safely ride, there being sufficient Water on the Bar called Jekyll for such 
Ships to go over, which Bar lies in 30 d. 40 m. and behind Jekyll Island 
tl»ero is Water, and Room enough for Shipping for Ten Miles up. The 
Battery is inclosed within a strong Wall, and h» a Guard-house within 
the Wall capable of holding Twenty-foar Men. 

Another Fort was built on the Soath-wesl Fart of tiie Island of St, 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 389 

Peter's, (now called Cumberlaad) which lies inSOd. 30 m. under which 
Fort, on which are mounted several Pieces of Ordnance, pointed towards 
the River, all Sloops and Boats in the Inland Passage to this Island must 
come. Within the Palisade round the Fort, there are fine Springs of 
Water; and there is a well-framed Timber Log-house, Thirty Feet by 
Eighteen, with a Magazine under it, both for Ammunition and Provis- 
ions. A Scout Boat is stationed at this Island. 

As these Precautions were taken for the Southern Part of the Prov- 
ince, Directions were given for a Fort to be built for the Security of 
the Northern Part, by way of an Out-guard ai^aiust any Invasion by 
Land. This was at a Place called Augusta, which has proved a very 
thriving Town, it being now the chief Place of Trade with the Indians, 
and where the Traders from both Provinces of South Carolina and Geor- 
gia resort, from the Security which they find there. Augusta is about 
Two hundred and Thirty Miles by Water from the Town of Savannah, 
and large Boats, which carry about Nine thousand Pounds Weight of 
Deer-skins, can navigate down the River Savannah. The Town which 
stands upon a high Ground, near the River, is well inhabited, and has 
several Ware-houses in it, furnished with Goods for the Indian Trade. 
A Road has been likewise made, so that Horsemen can now ride from 
this Town to Savannah, as likewise to the Cherokee Indians, who are 
situated above the Town of Augusta, and trade with it. A Garisou has 
been kept in this Fort, at the Trustees Expense, till the Arrival of the 
Regiment his Majesty since ordered for the Defence of the Colony. 

Whilst these Dispositions were making for the Safety of the Province, 
the Parliament gave Ten thousand Pounds this Year for the further 
settling and securing the Colony; but as the Expences of the Forts, and 
the Supplies which were sent for the Support of the Colony, were very 
great; and as many of the People in the Northern Part of the Province 
were as yet unable to subsist themselves, and out of Compassion for them 
and their Families, a Store was still kept open for their Subsistence; the 
Trustees sent over but few Persons this Year. 

Iq the Beginning of the Year 1737. the Spaniards at Augustine made 
Preparations for attacking the Colony of Georgia. They laid in Quanti- 
ties of Corn and Provision, bought up a great Number of Fire-arms, and 
large Bodies of regular Troops were sent thither from the Havannah. 

The Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina informed the Magistrates 
of Savannah of these Preparations. This Advice and the frequent 
Alarms which were otherwise given, drew the People off from their 
Labour in the Sowing-season, and the Improvements in their Planta- 



390 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

tioos were neglected, and they were obliged to make Preparations for 
their Defence. 

At the same time the Highlanders at New Inverness, who were exposed 
to Danger, built a Fort there, and Twelve Pieces of Cannon were 
mounted on it. 

Tho' the People at Savannah were not so immediately exposed to 
Danger, they began to build a large Fort at their Town, of a Palisade- 
work with Bastions : But as the Trustees perceived, that this took off 
the People from their Cultivation, that the Work would be very charge- 
able, and they had not Money to support the Expence ; they found 
themselves under a Necessity to put a Stop thereto.

The Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina having acquainted the

the 7th of February 1736-7. that he had received Advice from Com-

inodore Dent, of Preparations made by the Spaniards at Augustine and 
the Havannah, in order to make an Attack on the Colony of Georgia ; 
and the Trustees having in a * Memorial to his Majesty, set forth the 
Inability of the Colony to protect themselves against such Force as was 
preparing at the Havannah and Augustine ; his Majesty was graciously 
pleased to order a Regiment of Six hundred effective Men to be raised, 
and sent to Georgia, for the Defence and Protection of it. 

And as an Encouragement for the Soldiers good Behavior, the Trus- 
tees resolved to give each of them a Property in the Colony. They 
therefore made a Grant of Land in Trust for an Allotment of Five 
Acres of Land to each Soldier of the Regiment to cultivate for his own 
Use and Benefit, and to hold the same during his Continuance in his 
Majesty's Service ; and, for a further Encouragement, they resolved. 
That each Soldier, who, at the End of Seven Years Service from the 
Time of his enlisting in the Regiment, should be desirous of quitting his 
Majesty's Service and should have his regular Discharge, and would 
settle in the Colony, should, on his commanding Officer's Certificate of 
his good Behavior, be entitled to a Grant of Twenty Acres of Land. 

The Parliament having taken into Consideration the great Expences 
which the Trustees had been at in making Roads through the Proviuce, 
and the several Fortifications in it, and the Presents made to the Indians 
to engage them firmer in the British Interests ; and likewise the Prepara- 
tions which were making by the Spaniards in order to take or destroy 
the Colony; and having granted for this Year a Sum of Twenty thou- 
sand Pounds for the further settling and securing the Colony; the 
Trustees made another Embarkation, which consisted chiefly of perse- 
cuted German Protestants.

The Lands granted in Trust this Year, in order to be granted out in 
emaller Portions in Georgia, were Three thousand Acres. 

The Land granted this Year to Persons going at their own Expence, 
were One thousand Acres. 

The Money received this Year pursuant to Act of Parliament was 
20,000 1. and in Benefactions 909 1. 19 s. 10* whereof the Trustees ap- 
plied 18,870 1. 13 8. 3i. of which they exhibited an Accompt to the 
Lord Chancellor, and the Master of the Rolls, pursuant to their Charter, 
and carried the Kemainder into their succeeding Accompt. 

From the qth of June 1738. to the 9TH of June 1739. 

As several Merchants and Captains of Ships had, for their own Inter- 
est, carried into the Colony, from New York, and other Places, large 
Cargoes of Provisions, &c. great Part of which (to save the Merchants 
from Loseet) was taken in at the Store without a proper Authority from the 
Trustees ; and an Expence created thereby which the Trustees could not 
estimate, nor have Ability to discharge, and for which certified Accounts 
were returned to them ; the Trustees published an Advertisement in the 
London Gazette , and ordered it to be published in the South Carolina 
Qazetie, and to be affixed upon the Doors of the Store-houses at Savan- 
nah and Frederica: That out of a due Regard to publick Credit, they 
had resolved. That all Expeiices which they had ordered, or should order, 
to be made in America, for the Use of the Colony, should be defrayed 
and paid for in Georgia, in Sola Bills of Exchange only, under their 
Seal ; and they gave Notice, That no Person whatsoever had any Author- 
ity from them, or in their Name, or on their Account, to purchase or 
receive any Cargoes of Provisions, Stores or Necessaries, without paying 
for them in the said Sola Bills. 

Upon a Petition of one Abraham De Lyon, a Freeholder of Savannah 
in Georgia, that he had expended a great Sum in the Cultivation of 
Vines, which he had carried from Portugal, and had brought to great 
Perfection ; and several Certificates being produced of his great Improve- 
ments in cultivating them, and of the Goodness of the Grapes, and their 
thriving in the most barren Lands of the Province ; the Trustees assisted 
him to proceed in his Improvements. 

The Security of the Colony being provided for by the Regiment sent 
over by his Majesty, the Parliament gave Eight thousand Pounds for the 
further settling the Colony : Therefore the Trustees sent over an Esti- 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 393 

niate of all the Expences which they allowed to be made in the Province ; 
by which several military Expences, which they had been engaged in for 
the Defence of the Colony, and which were very great, were reduced. 

The Trustees this Year sent over the Reverend Mr. Norris to reside at 
Frederica, with a Salary of Fifty Pounds a Year, ordered a House to be 
built for him, and another for the Inhabitants to perform divine Service 
in, till a Church could be built there. 

The Assembly of South Carolina having in the last Year passed an 
Ordinance for raising a Sum to indemnify their Traders in Opposition to 
the Act of which was approved of by his Majesty in Council, for main- 
taining the Peace with the Indians in the Province of Georgia, upon a 
Memorial from the Trustees, complaining of the said Ordinance, and 
upon the Petition of the Council and Assembly of South Carolina against 
the said Act, there was a solemn Hearing before the Lords Commission- 
ers for Trade and Plantatious; and afterwards before a Committee of the 
Lords ot his Majesty's Privy Council : Whereupon his Majesty was 
pleased to order. That the said Ordinance of the Assembly of South Caro- 
lina should be repealed, and declared void; and was pleased to send an 
Instruction to the Trustees to prepare a proper Act or Ordinance for set- 
tling the Trade carried on by the Provinces of South Carolina and Geor- 
gia, with the Indians, on such a Footing as might be for the mutual Bene- 
fit and Satisfaction of both Provinces ; and his Majesty at the same time 
was graciously pleased to give an Instruction to Samuel Horsey, Esq ; 
Governor and Lieutenant General of South Carolina, to recommend to 
the Council and Assembly there, to pass a Law for the like Purpose in 
that Province : But Samuel Horsey, Esq; dying soon after, and no 
other Governor having since gone to South Carolina, that Affair remains, 
unsettled. 

The Trustees immediately sent to Colonel Oglethorpe a Copy of his 
Majesty's Instructions, and desired, that he would consult with Lieuten- 
ant Governor Bull in South Carolina, that Plans of proper Acts might 
be prepared and sent over to the Trustees for their Consideration, in 
order to answer the Purposes of his Majesty's Instructions ; and that in 
the meantime the Commissioners of South Carolina, and the Commis- 
sioners of Georgia, might proceed in their respective Provinces, in Con. 
cert with each other, to carry on a mutual Trade to the Indians in both 
Provinces. 

Mr. Stephens, Secretary in Georgia, having informed the Trusteea, 
That the Grand Jury at Savannah claimed a Right of administeriDg 
Oaths, and making Inquiry thereon, into all such Matters, as they should 
think fit, and the Trustees having perceived, that, in a Representation of 



394 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

the said Grand Jury, they had pretended to such Right, sent a Letter to 
Mr. Stephens, to acquaint him, That the Trustees were sensible great 
Mischief might be done by ill-designing Men, who might procure them, 
selves to be put upon the Panel, if this Claim of the Orand Jury was 
allowed of; and therefore the Trustees ordered him to acquaint the Peo- 
ple, That the Grand Juries had no such Right, and that their Claim was 
intirely illegal. 

As the Trustees, both by their Letters and Instructions to the Magis* 
trates, had constantly exhorted and encouraged the People to a Cultiva- 
tion of their Lands, on which they were to depend for their Support ; 
and as they found, that many (as well of those whom they had sent over 
as Objects of Charity, as of others, who, at different Times, had gone 
into the Colony from other Plantations for a temporary Maintenance) 
still continued in their Idleness, and were a Burden upon the Trust; they 
gave Orders for striking off the Store, all such as, having had Time to 
cultivate their Lands, had neglected it. This carried from the Colony 
many of those who had gone thither, or joined it from other Parts of 
America, to gain a Subsistance for a Year or two ; and of others, who 
had not considered the Hardships attending the first Settlement of a Coun- 
try, and were tired of their Labour. 

The Trustees receiving an Account, dated the 12th of February 1738. 
from their Secretary in the Province, of an Uneasiness amongst several 
Persons, upon the Tenure of their Lots being confined to Heirs Male ; 
and they considering, that the Colony had been some time established, 
the People grown more numerous ; and a Regiment being stationed in it 
for its Defence ; whereby the former Tenures became less necessary ; did 
on the 15th of March following, at their anniversary Meeting, resolve, 
That in Default of Issue Male, any legal Possessor of Land might by a 
Deed in Writing, or by his last Will and Testament, appoint his Daughter 
as his Successor, or any other Male or Female Relation ; with a Proviso, 
That the Successor should, in the proper Court in Georgia, personally 
claim the Lot granted or devised, within Eighteen Months after the 
Death of the Grantor or Devisor. 

This was soon after extended to every legal Possessor's being impowered 
to appoint any other Person as his Successor. 

But whilst the Trustees were taking these Steps for the Satisfaction of 
the People ; and whilst those in the Southern Part of the Province (tho* 
exposed to greater Danger) were industrious and easy in their Settle- 
ments, many of those in the Northern Part, who had neglected the Cul- 
tivation of their Lands, drew up a * Representation, dated the 9th of 

* Appendix, No. VIII. 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 396 

December 1738. setting forth the Want of a Fee-eimple to their Lands, 
and Negroes to cultivate them ; but they were far from being seconded 
or supported by the People in the Southern Part of the Province in this 
Bepresentation, who not only refused to sign it, but f petitioned the Trus. 
tees against the Use of Negroes ; setting forth the Danger they should 
be in from the Spaniards, who had proclaimed Freedom to all Slaves who 
would resort to them ; and that by this means they should be exposed to 
an Enemy without, and a more dangerous one in their Bosoms. 

The industrious Saltzburghers also at Ebenezer (who are in the North- 
ern Part of the Province, not far from Savannah) X petitioned against 
Negroes, and set forth their Satisfaction and Happiness in their Settle- 
ment ; that they had raised in the last Season more Rice, Peas, Potatoes, 
Pomkins, Cabbage, Corn, &c. than was necessary for their Consumption, 
and that they did not find the Climate so warm but that it was very tol- 
erable for working People.

From the qth of June 1739. to the 9TH of June 1740. 

At the Time that some of the People of Savanoah were so clamorous 
for Negroes, (for Seventy-five Land and Freeholders, of whom Fifty- 
two were Freeholders, did not apply for them) the Province of South 
Carolina was under frequent Alarms upon account of the Negroes 
there. They had lutelligence, that a Conspiracy was formed by the 
Negroes in Carolina to rise, and forcibly make their Way out of the 
Province, to put themselves under the Protection of the Spaniards ; who 
had proclaimed Freedom to all who should run to them from their 
Owners. That this Conspiracy was discovered at Winyaw, the most 
Northern Part of that Province, from whence, as the Negroes must bend 
their Course, it argued that the other Parts of the Province must be 
privy to it, and that the Rising was to be universal. Whereupon the 
whole Province wtis upon their Guard ; the Number of Negroes in South 
CHn»lina being computed to be about Forty thousand, and the Number 
of White Men, at most, not above Five thousand. As several Negroes, 
who were employed in Pettiauguas, and other like Craft, (which they 
carried ofl with them) had taken the Benefit of the Spaniards Proclama- 
tion, and gone to Augustine, the Government of South Carolina sent a 
solemn Deputation to demand their Slaves. This Deputation consisted 
of Mr. Braithwaite, a Member of the Council, Mr. Rutlidge, one of the 
Assembly, and Mr. Amiau, Clerk of the Assembly ; but the Governor 
of Augustine, tho' in Time of profound Peace, peremptorily refused to 
deliver them up, and declared he had Orders to receive all such as 
shiHild come thither, and protect them. 

Upon this, and the Petitions which were sent from the Highlanders 
at Darieu, and the Saltsburghers at Ebenezer, representing the Danger 
and Inconvenience of the Introduction of Negroes, the Trustees sent, 
under their Seal, an * Answer to the Representation from some of thA 
Inhabitants of Savannah. 

Among the Persons to whom Grants of Lands were made in order to 
their settling at their own Expence in the Colony, some never went 
over ; others were Gentlemen of Carolina, who neglected to take up 
thoir Lands, or even desire to have them laid out; and others, who 
quitted their Plantations, and went to reside at Savannah as Shop- 
keepers: One Man in particular, an Apothecary Surgeon, from the 
Beginning, neglected his Grant, and followed his Practice in the Town ; 
another quitted his Plantation, and betook himself to selling of Rum : 
To theae Two, almost ail the Town of Savannah were indebted for 

•Ap|>«tuiUi. No. XI. 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 397 

Phyeick or Rum; and thej first raised the Clamour, that Lands migh^ 
be alienable, and Negroes admitted, which would have made them Pos' 
sessors of the chief Part of the Lots. To these some others, who had 
gone at their own Expeuce, and had employed their covenanted Serv- 
vants on their Plantations, joined themselves, taking their Servants from 
their Labour, and letting them out to Hire in the Town, for the sake 
of an immediate Profit, on which they lived in an idle and riotous 
manner ; and even at the Time when their Servants were taken ofi from 
their proper Labour in their Plantations, they fomented the Clamour 
for Nejjroes, in order to carry them on. The Spirit of Idleness, which 
was very early introduced in the Town, many of the People were too 
ready to follow. Constant Clubs have been held, and Horse-races kept 
up by them, to amuse and divert the People from their Labour ; and 
Delinquents (who have insulted the Liws, even in the Courts of Jus- 
tice, and declared they would do their utmost to destroy the Colony) 
have, when committed to Prison, been abetted and supported by them. 
By these the before- mentioned Representation was formed, and many 
of the People by their own Inclination to Idleness, by the Power which 
the others had over them as Creditors, and by Hopes being given them, 
that if they stuck to;:ether, the Trustees must grant them Negroes, or 
see the Colony abandoned, were thus drawn in to sign the same; in 
which they in a manner demanded the Permi:<sion of Negroes, and an 
Alteration of their Tenures. 

The Trustees, to make ail the People as easy and contented as they 
could, published an Advertisement in the London Gazette^ the 8th of 
September 1739. and other Papers, which was continued for several 
Days; an«i ordered it to be published in the South Carolina Oazette, 
that they had resolved to inlarge their Grants on Failure of Issue Male, 
and t<> make a cetain Provision for the Widows of the Grantees, in the 
following manner, viz. That the Lands already granted, and such as 
should hereafter be granted, should, on Failure of Issue Male, descend 
to the Daughters) of such Grantees ; and in case there should be no 
Issue, Male or Female, that the Grantees might devise such Lauds ; and 
for want ot such Devise, that such Lands should descend to their Heirs 
at I^w ; with a Proviso, that the Possession of the Person who should 
enjoy such Devise, should not be increased to more than Five hundred 
Acres; and that the Widows of the Grantees should hold and enjoy 
the Dwelling-house, Garden, and One Moiety of the Lands their Hus- 
bands should die seized of, for and during the Term of their Lives. 

The Trustees directed in the Advertisement, that those who intended 
to have tb^ lienefit given them, should enter their respective Claims, in 



398 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

order that proper Grants and Conveyances in the Law might be forth- 
with prepared and executed for that Purpose ; and that no Fee or 
Reward was to be taken for the entering of any such Claim, directly or 
indirectly, by any Person or Persons whatsoever. 

In the Month of August 1739. the Trustees received Advice from 
General Oglethorpe, that he had frequent Intelligence of the Spaniards 
endeavoring to bribe the Indians, and particularly the Creek Nation, 
into a Rupture with the English ; which made it necessary for him to 
go to the General Assembly of the Indian Nations at the Coweta-town, 
about Five hundred Miles distant from Frederica, in order to prevent 
such Designs and Seditions amongst them ; and that he had been obliged 
to buy Horses, and Presents to carry up to this Meeting, where the 
Choctaws (who are upon the Frontiers between the English and French 
Settlements) and the Chickesaws were to send their Deputies. 

This Journey of General Oglethorpe's has since appeared to be of 
great Service to the Publick; for on the 26th of August 1739. Mr. 
Stephens received an Express from Colonel Bull, Lieutenant Governor 
of South Carolina, that he had Intelligence from Lieutenant Governor 
Clarke of New York, concerning the French marching from Mont Reall, 
near Quebeck, with a Body of about Two hundred regular Troops, and 
Five hundred Indians, who were to be reinforced by French and Indians 
in their Journey : That this Army was designed against the Indians in 
Friendship with his Britannick Majesty's Subjects of Carolina and 
Georgia, who are situated near some Branches of the Mississippi River. 
Colonel Bull added, that he should immediately dispatch an Express to 
the Creek Nation with Advice to General Oglethorpe of the Contents 
of Lieutenant Governor Clarke's Letter ; and that it was necessary, that 
both the Provinces of Carolina and Georgia should be on their Guard ; 
though if the Creek Indians should prove true, the Danger would not 
be great. General Oglethorpe, by his Treaties with the Indians in this 
Journey, has confirmed them in the British Interest, and made a new 
Treaty with them ; whereby their former Concession of Lands to Great 
Britain was confirmed and extended. 

A Parcel of Raw Silk was brought this Year from Georgia by one 
Mr. Samuel Augspourguer, who made an AfiBdavit before a Master in 
Chancery, that he received it from the Hands of Mr. Thomas Jones, the 
Trustees Store-keeper at Savannah, who told him it was the Produce of 
Georgia ; and the said Samuel Augspourguer, who resided in the South- 
ern Part of the Province, said, That, when at Savannah, he saw the 
Italian Family there winding off Silk from the Coquons. 

The Silk was shewed at the Trustees Office to Mr. John Zachary, an 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 399 

eminent Kaw Silk Merchant, and Mr. Booth, one of the greatest Silk 
Weavers in England, who declared it was as fine as any Italian Silk, and 
that it was worth, at least, Twenty Shillings a Pound. 

This Mr. Samuel Augspourguer, who joined the Colony in the Begin- 
ning of the Year 1736. left it in July 1739. with Two Men Servants, and 
their Children, on his Plantation ; and came over to obtain a Grant of 
Five hundred Acres of Land, and to get some of his own Countrymen 
from the Canton of Beam in Switzerland, to go with him as Servants, 
on his Return to Georgia, in order to proceed more effectually in the 
Cultivation of his Lands.

From the qth of June 1740. to the present Time. 

The Trustees this Year took further Methods for the Satisfaction of 
the People in the Province ; they extended the Tenures, by which the 
Daughter of a Grantee, or any other Person, was made capable ot 
enjoying, by Devise or Inheritance, any Quantity of Lands which 
did not increase her or his Possession, to more than Two thousand 
Acres. 

A Licence was likewise granted for all the present Possessors of Land 
in Georgia, to make Leases of any Part of their Lots, for any Terra not 
exceeding Three Years, to any Person residing in Georgia, and who 
should reside there during the Term of such Lease. 

A general Release was likewise passed, by which no Advantage was 
to be taken against any of the present Possessors of Land in Georgia, 
for any Forfeitures incurred at any time before Christmas 1740. in rela- 
tion either to the Tenure or Cultivation of Land. And the Possessors 
of Fifty Acres of Land were not obliged to cultivate more than Five 
Acres thereof in Ten Years, from their Grants ; and those of under 
Fifty Acres, in Proportion : And the Possessors of Five hundred Acres 
of Land, were not obliged to cultivate more than One hundred and 
Twenty Acres thereof in Twenty Years, from their Grants ; and those 
of under Five hundred Acres, and above Fifty Acres, in Proportion, 
to prevent any Forfeitures for want of cultivating the Quantities 
required. 

Under these Circumstances it is presumed, That no Complaint can 
now with Reason be made against the Tenure by which the Inhabitants 
at this Time hold their Lands ; since they have more Power than is 
generally given by Marriage Settlements, in which the Grantees are 
only Tenants for Life, incapable of mortgaging, or aliening, or making 
any Disposition by their last Will ; whereas the Freeholders in Georgia 
are now become Tenants in Tail General, and may, with the Licence 
of the Common-Council of the Trustees, upon Application made to them 
for that Purpose, mortgage or alien ; and further, without Application, 
have it absolutely in their Power, on Failure ot Issue in Tail, to dispo^ 
thereof by their last Will. 

By an Account received from the Secretary in the Province, it appears. 
That on the First of August 1740. about Seventy Freeholders of the 
Northern Part of the Province, delivered in the Town-court of Savannah, 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 401 

their Claims of Lots, under the Tenures which were advertised the last 
Year in the South Carolina and London ChueUet, 

That on the Fifteenth of the same Month, as manj or more ap« 
peared in the said Town-court on the same Occasion ; and that on the 
Twenty-seventh of the same Month, divers more delivered in their Claims 
likewise. 

The Trustees are informed by their Secretary in the Province, That in 
pursuance of their Orders, he had just finished an authenticated Account 
of the State of the Colony, with respect to the Number of Inhabitants 
in the several Towns and Villages^; the Number of Houses, and the Set- 
tlements made ; the Progress which the several People had made in the 
Cultivation of their Lands, and their Ability or Inability to support 
themselves ; and in any Case where the last appeared, the Reasons of it ; 
the Proportions of the different Sorts of Soil, as near as could be com- 
puted ; and an Account of the several Produces, which, by Experience 
or Appearance, could or might be raised for Trade. And the Trustees 
are in daily Expectation of receiving from him the said Account. But by 
the several Accounts before received, they are enabled to give, though an 
imperfect one, the following State of the Settlements, viz. 

The Town of Savannah is about Ten Miles up the River Savannah ; 
there are (beside Warehouses and Huts) at least One hundred and Thirty 
Houses in the Town. As these, for the sake of Air, and to prevent the 
spreading of any Fire, are built at some Distance from each other, they 
make several spacious Squares and wide Streets. There is a regular 
Magistracy settled in the Town, which the Trustees are obliged to be at 
the Expence of supporting, till the' Colony arrives at sufficient Strength 
to do it. There are in the Town a Court-house, a Store-house, a Goal, 
a House for the Trust-Servants, a Wharf, a Guard-house, and some other 
publick Buildings ; a Church is at present buildiog, and a Clergyman is 
settled there. The Town is excellently situated for Trade, the Naviga- 
tion of the River being very secure ; and Ships of Three hundred Ton 
can lie within Six Yards of the Town, and the Worm does not eat into 
them. 

About Four Miles from Savannah, inland from the River, are the Two 
Villages Highgate and Hampstead, which lie at about a Mile distant 
ftom each : The People settled there apply themselves chiefly to Gar- 
dening, and supply the Town of Savannah with Quantities of Greens 
and Garden-stuff. 

By the Account of Mr. Thomas Stephens, who at his Father's Request, 
was sent over to assist him in his Business of Secretary in the Province, 
and continued with him there some short time, he states. That there are 

24 r— TOl 8 



402 COLONIAL RECORDS, 

Twenty PlantatioDS, within Twenty Miles round Savannah, which have 
€ach of them from Five to Thirty Acres of Land cleared. 

About Fifteen Miles from Savannah, is a Village called Abercorn ; 
about Twenty Miles further up the River, is the Town of Ebenezer, 
where the Saltzburghers are settled, with Two Ministers ; One of whom 
Computed, That the Number of his Congregation, in June 1738, con- 
sisted of One hundred and Forty-six. Therefore as the Infants could 
not be reckoned in the Computation, and as Seven more have since been 
sent and settled with them, it is believed the Number has been increased ; 
especially since the Town is so healthy, that by a Letter sent to the Society 
for promoting Christian Knowledge, by the Reverend Mr. Bolzius, one 
of the Ministers at Ebenezer, dated ihe 26th of June 1740. he declared. 
That in a Year's Time one Person only had died, which was a Child of 
Four Years old. The People are industrious and sober ; they raise not 
only a sufficient Quantity of Corn, and other Produces, for their own 
Subsistence, but they sell great Quantities to those at Savannah, who 
have not been so careful of their Plantations ; they have great Herds of 
Cattle, and are in so thriving a Condition, that not one Person has aban- 
doned his Settlement, or sent over the least Complaint about the Tenures 
or the want of Negroes. On the contrary, they in a Body petitioned 
against the Use of Negroes ; and their ministers have declared, That their 
signing that Petition was a voluntary Act : And at their Desire, another 
Embarkation of their Countrymen, who are willing to go from Germany 
and join them, is designed to be sent with all convenient Speed. 

About Ten Miles from hence, upon a River running into Savannah, 
is a Place called Old Ebenezer, where is a Cow-pen, and great Number 
of Cattle, for the Use of the Publick, and for Breeding. 

At a considerable Distance from hence is the Town of Augusta, before 
described, which, from the great Resort of Traders and Indians, is in a 
thriving Condition, and is and will be a great Protection to both the 
Provinces of Carolina and Georgia, against any Designs of the French. 

In the Southern Part of the Province is the Town of New Invemeas, 
upon the River Alatamaha, where the Highlanders are settled. 

And about Twenty Miles from hence, on the Island, of St. Simon's 
near the Sea, is the Town of Frederica, with a regular Magistracy, as at 
Savannah, supported at the Expence of the Trust ; Strong Fortifications 
round the Town are almost finished ; and at the South-East Point of the 
Island are Barracks for Three hundred and Thirty Men. 

There are Settlements on the Islands of Jekyll and Cumberland, which 
lie at a small Distance from each other to the Southward of Frederica ; 
and on the last. Two Forts are built, one of which was described before. 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 403 

and the other was finished in April 1740. upon the South End of the 
Island. It commands the Inlet to Amelia Sound, is strongly palisaded 
with Flankers, and is defended by Eight Pieces of Cannon. 

Barracks are built upon this Island for Two hundred and Twenty Men, 
with Store-houses, which were finished in October 1738. 

There are Six Forts in the Province, and a Battery of Cannon erected 
to secure the Harbour at St. Simon's, under which Ships may safely lie. 

The Indians from the Presents which they have annually received 
from the Trustees, and from the Justice and Humanity with which they 
have been treated, are secured in the British Interest, notwithstandiog the 
Arts both of the French and the Spaniards to seduce them : By this 
South Carolina has been free from those Wars in which (as the Preamble 
to his Majesty's Charter sets forth) they had frequently suffered, and so 
late as in the Year 1715. had been laid almost waste with Fire and 
Sword ; and by the Security which South Carolina received by such a 
Frontier as Georgia is to it, very large Tracts of Land have been culti- 
vated in the Southern Part of that Province, which no Person would 
venture to settle on before, and a great Quantity of Rice raised thereon. 

As the People in Georgia, sent on the Charity, were supported, to en- 
able them to raise their own Provision.'*, in the first Place, on the Lands 
they should clear, and to convert the Timber they should cut down in 
clearing those Lands into Lumber, which they might, to their great Ad- 
vantage, export to the Sugar Colonies ; and further, to raise Silk, Wine 
and Oil, for which the Climate was very proper ; it was hoped from thence 
they would gain a comfortable Subsistence, and be of Service to their 
Mother-Country in raising such Produces, which at present are purchased 
from Foreigners with ready Money. 

Having thus stated the Plan laid down for the Trustees by hb Majesty's 
Charter ; the several Steps taken by them for the Execution of that Plan, 
with their yearly Progress therein ; the several Obstructions from unfore- 
seen Accidents, which have checked that Progress, with the present Con- 
dition of the Colony, according to the latest and most authentick Accounts 
from thence ; they submit the Whole to the Wisdom of this Honourable 
House, being intensely disposed to follow any Directions that shall flow 
from thence: And as they have no other View but the Service of their 
Country, by making this Colony as useful to the Interest of Great-Britain, 
as by its Situation and Climate it is capable of being, they heartily wish 
the Trust in abler Hands, that those important Services might not be 
defeated thro' their Inability. 

By Order of Trustees, 

Benj. Mabtyk, Secretary. 



APPENDIX. 
NUMBER I. 

To THE Trustees for estabi^ishing the Colony of 
Georgia. 

Qentlemen, 

In writing this Answer to tbe Letter, which I had the Honour to 
receive from jou, dated the 29th Instant, wherein yon desire to know 
my Sentiments of an Undertaking to raise Raw Silk in your new Settle- 
ments in Georgia ; of the Probability of succeeding therein ; the proper 
Steps to be taken to bring that Work to Perfection ; and my Opinion of 
the Nature, Quality and Use of the Raw Silk produced in Carolina : It 
is a great Pleasure to me, that, from Experiments which I made some 
Years ago, I can now, besides my Opinion, give you some Information 
concerning that Silk, which may be depended on. 

The Value and Usefulness of the Undertaking will appear, as soon as 
we consider, that all the Silk consumed in this Kingdom, is now of foreign 
Growth and Manufacture, which costs the Nation very great Sums of 
Money yearly to Purchase ; and that the raising our Supply thereof in 
his Majesty's Dominions in America, would 'save us all that Money, 
afford Employment to many Thousands of his Majesty's Subjects, and 
greatly increase the Trade and Navigation of Great Britain. 

It appears to me as beneficial to this Kingdom, attended with as little 
Hazard or Difficulty, as much wanted, and which may as soon be brought 
to Perfection in a proper Climate, as any Undertaking so considerable in 
itself, that I ever heard of. I therefore think there is a very great 
Probability of its succeeding if such proper Measures are pursued, and 
such Assistance afforded to the poor People at their first setting out, as 
are necessary to settle, instruct and encourage them. 

The Silk produced in Carolina has as much natural Strength and 
Beauty, as the Silk of Italy (which is commonly called Fine Silk); and 
by the several Experiments I have tried with it, I am satisfied, it may 
be made to answer the same Purposes, as Italian Silk now does, if it be 
reeled in short Skains, a fine, clean and even Thread : To affect which, 
if some experienced Persons are at first sent to teach the People, the 
Work will soon be made easy to the meanest Capacity, and the Value of 
the Silk will be thereby greatly increased.

As for my own Part, if at any time you should tbink I can be of Use 
to promote so good a Work, I sball be ready to execute your Commands 
as far as I am able; and always remain, 

Gentlemen,

Extract of a Letter from South Carouna Gazette, 
dated at charles- town the 22d march 1 732. 

On Tuesday the 13th Instant I went on board a Canoe, in Company 
with Mr. George Ducat and Mr. John Ballantine, with Four I^egroes ; 
and about 10 o'Clock we set off from Mr. Lloyd's Bridge for Georgia, 
and passing by Port Royal on Wednesday Night, we arrived, on Friday 
Morning, an Hour before Day, at Yammacraw, a Place so called by the 
Indians, but now Savannah, in the Colony of Georgia. Some time 
before we came to the Landing, the Centinel challenged us, and under- 
standing who we were, admitted us ashore. This is a very high Bluff, 
Forty Feet perpendicular from High-water Mark. It lies, according to 
Captain Gascoigne's Observations, in the Latitude 31 : 58, which he 
took off Tybee, an Island that lies at the Mouth of the Savannah Biv^r. 
It is distant from Charles-Town S. W. according to the Course and 
Windings of the Rivers and Creeks, about 140 Miles ; but, bj a direct 
Course, 77, allowing Sullivant's Island to be in the Latitude 32 : 47 from 
Augustine, N. E. and by E. about 140 Miles, and by the Course of 
the Rivers is distant from Fort Moore 300 Miles ; but, upon a direct 
Line, but 115 MUesN. W. and byW. This Bluff is distant 10 Miles from 
the Mouth of the Rivers on the South Side ; and Parrysburgh is 24 Miles 
above it on the North, and is so situated, that you have a beautiful Pros- 
pect, both up and down the River. It is very sandy and barren and 
consequently a wholesome Place for a Town or City* There are on it 
130 odd Souls; and firom the Time they embarqued at London, to the 
Time I left the Place, there died but Two sucking Children, and they 
at Sea. When they arrived, there was standing on it a great Quantity 
of the best Sorts of Pine, most of which is already cut down on the 
Spot where the Town is laid out to be built The Land is barren 
about a Mile back, when you come into very rich Ground ; and on both 
Sides, within a Quarter of a Mile of the Town b choice good Planting-

land. Colonel Bull told me, That he had been Seven Miles back, and 
found it extraordinary good. 

Mr. Oglethorpe is indefatigable, takes a rast deal of Pains ; his Fare 
is but indifferent, having little else at present but salt Provisions : He 
is extremely well beloved by all his People ; the general Title they give 
him is Father. If any of them is sick, he immediately visits them, and 
takes a great deal of Care of them. If any Difierence arises, he is the 
Person that decides it. Two happened while I was there, and in my 
Presence ; and all the Parties went away, to outward Appearance, sat- 
isfied and contented with his Determination. He keeps a strict Disci- 
pline ; I never saw one of his People drunk, or heard one swear, all 
the Time I was there : He does not allow them Rum, but in lieu gives 
them English Beer. It is surprising to see how chearfully the Men go 
to work, considering they have not been bred to it : There are no Idlers 
there ; even the Boys and Girls do their Parts . There are Four Houses 
already up, but none finished ; and he hopes, when he has got more 
Sawyers, which I suppose he will have in a short time, to finish Two 
Houses a Week. He has ploughed up some Land, part of which he 
sowed with Wheat, which is come up, and looks promising. He has 
Two or Three Gardens, which he has sowed with divers Sorts of Seeds, 
and planted XbxS^e, with other Sorts of Pot-herbs, Sage, Leeks, Skel- 
lions, Celeri, Liquorice, <fcc. and several Sorts of Fruit-trees. He was 
palisading the Town round, including some Part of the Common, which 
I do suppose may be finished in a Fortnight's Time. In short, he has 
done a vast deal of Work for the Time, and I think his Name justly 
deserves to be immortalized. 

Mr. Oglethorpe has with him Sir Walter Raleigh's written Journal, 
and, by the Latitude of the Place, the Marks and Tradition of the In- 
dians, it is the very first Place where he first went ashore, and talked 
with the Indians, and was the first Englishman that ever they saw : And 
about half a Mile from Savannah is a high Mount of Earth, under 
which lies their chief King ; and the Indians informed Mr. Oglethorpe, 
That the King desired before he died, that he might be buried on the 
8pot where he talked with that great good Man. 

The River Water is very good, and Mr. Oglethorpe has proved 
U several Ways, and thinks it an good as the River of Thames. On 
Monday the 19th, we took our Leave of Mr. Oglethorpe at Nine o'Clock 
In the Morning, and embarked for Charles-Town ; and when we set off 
hti WAS pleased to honour us with a Volley of small Arms, and the 
Discharge of Five Cannon : And coming down the Rivers, we found 
the Water perfectly fresh Six Miles below the Town, and saw Six or

gia, and joor great Goodness, so timely applied, in promoting the Set- 
tlement of the Swiss at Purrysburgh ; encouraged by such Views of 
your Majesty's wise and paternal Care, extended to your remotest Sub- 
jects, and excited by the Duty which we owe to ;^our Most Sacred 
Majesty, to be always watchful for the Support and Security of your 
Majesty's Interest, especially at this very critical Conjuncture, when 
the Flame of a War, breaking out in Europe, may very speedily be 
lighted here in your Majesty's Frontier Province, which, in Situation, is 
known to be of the utmost Importance to the general Trade and Traffick 
of America: We therefore, your Majesty's most faithful Governor, 
Council and Commons, convened in your Majesty's Province of South 
Carolina, crave Leave, with great Humility, to represent to your Ma- 
jesty the present State and Condition of this your Province, and how 
greatly it stands in Need of your Majesty's gracious and timely Succor, 
in case of a War, to assist our Defence against the French and Spaniards, 
or any other Enemies to your Majesty's Dominions, as well as against 
the many Nations of Savages, which so nearly threaten the Safety of 
your Majesty *s Subjects. 

The Province of South Carolina, and the new Colony of Georgia, are the 
Southern Frontiers of all your Majesty's Dominions on the Continent of 
America, to the South and South- West of which is situate the strong 
Castle of St. Augustine, garisoned by Four hundred Spaniards, who 
have several Nations of Indians living under their Subjection, besides 
several other small Settlements and Garisons near the Appellaches, 
some of which are not Eighty miles distant from the Colony of Georgia. 
To the South-West and West of us the French have already erected 
a considerable Town near Fort Thoulouse, on the Moville River, and 
several other Forts and Garisons, some not above Three hundred Miles 
distant from our Settlements ; and at New Orleans on the Mississippi 
River, since her late Majesty Queen Ann's War, they have exceedingly 
increased their Strength and Traffick, and have now many Forts and 
Garisons on both Sides of that large River, for several Hundred Miles 
up the same ; and since his Most Christian Majesty has taken out of the 
Mississippi Company the Government of that Country into his own 
Hands, the French Natives of Canada come daily down in Shoals to set- 
tle all along that River, where many regular Forces have of late been 
sent over by the King, to strengthen the Garisons in those Places ; and, 
according to our best and latest Advices, they have Five hundred Men 
in Pay, constantly employed as Wood-Rangers, to keep their neighbour- 
ing Indians in Subjection, and to prevent the dbtant ones from disturb- 
ing their Settlements ; which Management of the French has so well sue- 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 416 

ceeded, that, we are very well assured, thej have wholly now in their 
Poflsession, and under their Influence, the several numerous Nations of 
Indians that are situate near the Mississippi River. One of which, 
called the Choctaw, by Estimation, consists of about Five thousand 
fighting Men, and who were always deemed a very warlike Nation, lies 
on this Side of the River, not above Four hundred Miles distant from 
our Out settlements, among whom, as well as several other Nations of 
Indians, many French Europeans have been sent to settle, whom the 
Priests and Missionaries among them encourage to take Indian Wives, 
and use divers other alluring Methods to attach the Indians the better 
to the French Alliance ; by which Means the French are become thor. 
oughly acquainted with the Indian Way, Warring, and Living in the 
Woods, and have now a great Number of White Men among them, able 
to perform a long March with an Army of Indians, upon any Expedi- 
tion. 

We further beg Leave to inform your Majesty, That if the Measures 
of France should provoke your Majesty to a State of Hostility against it in 
Europe, we have great Reason to expect an Invasion will be here made 
upon your Majesty's Subjects by the French and the Indians from the 
Mississippi Settlements. They have already paved a Way for a Design 
of that Nature, by erecting a Fort, called the Albama Fort, alias Fort 
Lewis, in the Middle of the Upper Creek Indians, upon a navigable 
River leading to Moville, which they have kept well garisoned, and 
mounted with Fourteen Pieces of Cannon, and have lately been pre- 
vented from erecting a Second nearer to us in that Quarter. The Creeks 
are a Nation very bold, active and daring, consisting of about Thirteen 
hundred fighting Men, (and not above One hundred and Fifty Miles 
distant from the Choctaws) whom tho' we heretofore have traded with, 
claimed, and held in our Alliance, yet the French, on account of that 
Fort, and a superior Ability to make them liberal Presents, have been for 
time striving to gain them over to their Interest, and have succeeded 
with some of the Towns of the Creeks ; which, if they can be secured 
in your Majesty's Interest, are the only Nation which your Majesty's Sub- 
jects here can depend upon as their best Barrier against any Attempts, 
either of the French, or their confederate Indians. 

We most humbly pray Leave further to inform your Majesty, That the 
French at Moville perceiving, that they could not gain the Indians to their 
Interest, without buying their Deer-skins, (which is the only Commodity 
the Indians have to purchase Necessaries with) and the French not being 
able to dispose of those Skins, by reason of their having no Vend for 
them in Old France, they have found Means to encourage Vessels from 



416 COLONIAL RECX>RDS. 

hence, New York, and other Places, (which are not prohibited by the 
Acts of Trade) to truck those Skins with them for Indian trading Goods, 
especially the British Woolen Manufactures, which the French dispose 
of to the Creeks and Choctaws, and other their Indians ; by which 
means the Indians are much more alienated from our Interest, and on 
every Occasion object to us, that the French can supply them with 
Strouds and Blankets as well as the English ; which would have the 
contrary Effect, if they were wholly furnished with those Commodities by 
your Majesty's Subjects trading among them. If a Stop were therefore 
put to that pernicious Trade with the French, the Creek Indians chief 
Dependence would be on this Government, and that of Georgia, to sup- 
ply them with those Goods ; by which Means great Part of the Choc- 
taws living next to the Creeks, would see the Advantage the Creek In- 
dians enjoyed by having British Woolen Manufactures wholly from your 
Majesty's Subjects, and thereby be invited in a short time to enter into 
a Treaty of Commerce with us, which they have lately made some Offers 
for, and which, if effected, would soon lessen the Interest of the French 
with these Indians, and by Degrees attach them to that of your Majesty. 
The only Expedient we can propose to recover and confirm that Na- 
tion to your Majesty's Interest, is by speedily making them Presents, to 
withdraw them from French Alliaoce ; and by building some Forts among 
them, your Majesty maybe put into such a Situation, that, on the first 
Notice of Hostilities with the French, your Majesty may be able to re- 
duce at once the Albama Fort, and we may then stand against the 
French and their Indians, which if not timely prepared for, before a 
War breaks out, we have too much Reason to fear, we may be soon over- 
run by the united Strength of the French, the Creeks, and Choctaws, 
with many other Nations of their Indian Allies ; for, should the Creeks 
become wholly Enemies, who are well acquainted with all our Settle- 
ments, we probably should also soon be deserted by the Cherokeea, and 
a few other small Tribes of Indians, who, for the sake of our Booty, 
would readily join to make us a Prey to the French and Savages. Ever 
since the late Indian War, the Offences given us then by the Creeks have 
made that Nation very jealous of your Majesty's Subjects of this Prov- 
ince. We have therefore concerted Measures with the Honourable James 
Oglethorpe, Esq ; who, being at the Head of the new Colony, will (we 
hope) be successful for your Majesty's Interest among that People. He 
has already, by Presents, attached the Lower Creeks to the Service of 
your Majesty, and has laudably undertaken to endeavour the fixing 
a Garison among the Upper Creeks, the Expence of which is already 
in Part provided for in this Session of the General Assembly of this 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 417 

Provinoe : We hope therefore to prevent the French from encroaching 
farther on your Majesty's Territories, until your Majesty is graciously 
pleased further to strengthen and secure the same. 

We find the Cherokee Nation has lately become very insolent to your 
Majesty's Subjects trading among them, notwithstanding the many Fa- 
vours which the Chiefs of that Nation received from your Majesty in Great 
Britain, besides a considerable Expence which your Majesty's Subjects of 
this Province have been at in making them Presents ; which inclines us 
to believe, that the French, by their Indians, have been tampering with 
them : We therefore beg Leave to inform your Majesty, that the build- 
ing and mounting Bome Forts also among the Cherokees, and making 
them Presents, will be highly necessary to keep them steady in their 
Dirty to your Majesty, lest the French may prevail in seducing that 
Nation, which they may the more readily be inclined to, from the Pros- 
pect of getting considerable Plunder in Slaves, Cattle and Commodities, 
which, they very well know they have among U6. Several other Forts 
will be indispensably necessary, to be a Cover to your Majesty's Subjects 
settled backwards in this Province, as also to those of the Colony of 
Georgia, both which in Length are very extensive ; for tho' the Trustees 
for establishing the Colony of Georgia, by a particular Scheme of good 
Management, painfully conducted by the Gentleman engaged here in 
that charitable Enterprize, have put that small Part of the Colony, which 
he has not yet been able to establish, in a tenable Condition against the 
Spaniards of Florida, which lie to the Southward, yet the back Exposi- 
tion of those Colonies to the vast Number of French and Indians, which 
border on the Westward, must, in case of a War, cry greatly aloud for 
your Majesty's gracious and timely Succour. The Expense of our Safety 
on such an Occasion, we must, in all Humility, acquaint your Majesty, 
either of Men for Money, can never be effected by your Majesty's Sub- 
jects of this Province, who, in Conjunction with Georgia, do not, in the 
Whole amount to more than Three thousand Five hundred Men that 
compose the Militia, and wholly consist of Planters, Traders, and other 
Men in Business. 

Besides the many Dangers, which, by Land, we are exposed to from 
so many Enemies that lie on the Back of us, we further beg Leave to 
represent to your Majesty the defenceless Condition of our Ports and 
Harbours, where any Enemies of your Majesty's Dominions may very easily 
by Sea invade us, there being no Fortifications capable of making much 
Resistance. Those in Charles-Town Harbour are now in a very ruinous 
Condition, occasioned by late violent Storms and Hurricanes, which 
already cost this Country a great deal of Money, and now requires several

418 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

ThousaDd of Pounds to repair the old, and build new ones ; to mount the 
Ordnance which your Majesty was graciously pleased to send us, which» 
with great Concern, we must inform your Maje8ty,''we have not yet been 
able to accomplish, being lately obliged, for the Defence and Support of 
this your Majesty's Province and Government, to raise, by a Tax on the 
Inbabitarits, a Supply of above Forty thousand Pounds Paper Currency 
per Annum, whicti is a considerable deal more than a third Part of all 
the Currency among us ; a Charge which your Majesty's Subjects of this 
Province are but barely able to sustain. Since your Majesty's Boyal In- 
struction to your Majesty's Governor here, and intire Stop has been put 
to the Duties which before accrued from European Goods imported ; and 
if a War should happen, or any thing extraordinary to be further ex^ 
pensive here, we should be under the utmost Difficulties to provide addi- 
tionally for the same, lest an Increase of Taxes, with an Apprehension 
of Danger, should drive away many of our present Inhabitants, as well 
as discourage others from coming here to settle, for the Defence and Im- 
provement of your Majesty's Province, there being several daily moving, 
with their Families and Effects, to North Carolina, where there are no 
such Fears and Burdens. 

We must further beg Leave to inform your Majesty, That amidst our 
other perilous Circumstances, we are subject to many intestine Dangers 
from the great Number of Negroes that are now among us, who amount 
at least to Twenty-two thousand Persons, and are Three to One of ail 
your Majesty's White Subjects in tliis Province. Insurrections against 
us have been often attempted, and would at any time prove very fatal, 
if the French should instigate them, by artfully giving them an Expec- 
tation of Freedom. In such a Situation, we most humbly crave leave 
to acquaint your Majesty, that even the present ordinary Expences Neces- 
sary for the Care and Support of this your Majesty's Province and Gov- 
ernment cannot be provided for by your Majesty's Subjects of this Prov- 
ince, without your Majesty's gracious Pleasure to continue those Laws 
for Establishing the Negroes, and other Duties, for Seven Years, and 
for appropriating the same, which now lie before your][Majesty for your 
Royal Assent and Approbation ; and the further Expences that will be 
requisite for the erecting some Forts, and establishing Garisons in the 
several necessary Places, so as to form a Barrier, for ^the* Security of this 
your Majesty's Province, we most humbly submit to your Majesty. 

Your Majesty's Subjects of this Province, with Fulness of Zeal, Duty 
and Affection to your most Gracious and Sacred Majesty, are so highly 
sensible of the great Importance of this Province to theJFrench, that we 
must conceive it more than probable, if a^War should happen, they will 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 419 

use all Endeavours to bring this Country under their Subjection : They 
would thereby be able to supply their Sugar Islands with all Sorts of 
Provisions and Lumber by an easy Navigation, which, to our great Advan- 
tage, is now not so practicable from the present French Colonies ; besides 
the Facility of gaining then to their Interest, most of the Indian Trade 
on the Northern Continent, they might then easily unite the Canadees 
and Choctaws with the many other Nations of Indians, which are now 
in their Interest. And the several Ports and Harbours of Carolina and 
Georgia, which now enable your Majesty to be absolute Master of the 
Passage through the Gulph of Florida, and to impede at your Pleasure 
the Transportation home of the Spanish Treasure, would then prove so 
many convenient Harbours for your Majesty's Enemies, by their Priva- 
teers or Ships of War, to annoy a great Part of the British Trade to 
America, as well as that which is carried on through the Gulph from Ja- 
maica, besides the Loss which Great Britain must feel in so considerable 
a Part of its Navigation, as well as the Exports of Masts, Pitch, Tar and 
Turpentine, which, without any Dependence on the Northern Powers of 
Europe, are from hence plentifully supplied for the Use of the British 
Shipping. 

This is the present State and Condition of your Majesty's Province of 
South Carolina, utterly incapable of finding Funds sufficient for the De- 
fence of this wide Frontier, and so destitute of White Men, that even 
Money itself cannot here raise a sufficient Body of them. 

With all Humility we therefore beg Leave to lay ourselves at the Feet 
of your Majesty, humbly imploring your Majesty's most Gracious Care 
in the Extremities we should be reduced to on the breaking out of a War ; 
and that your Majesty will be graciously pleased to extend your Protec- 
tion to us, as your Majesty, in your great Wisdom, shall think most 
proper.

The humble Memorial of the Trustees for Establishing the Colony 
of Georgia in America. 

Humbly Shewdh^ 

That thej being instructed by your Majesty with the Care of the 
Colony of Georgia, which was formerly Part of your Majesty's Province 
of Carolina ; and your Majesty's Colony of Georgia being very much 
exposed to the Power of the Spaniards, and become an Object of their 
Envy, by having valuable Ports upon the homeward Passage from the 
Spanish West Indies ; and the Spaniards having increased their Forces 
in the Neighborhood thereof, the Trustees, in consequence of the great 
Trust reposed in them by your Majesty, find themselves obliged humbly 
to lay before your Majesty their Inability suflSciently to protect your 
Majesty's Subjects settled in Georgia, under the Encouragement of your 
Majesty's Charter, against this late Increase of Forces ; and therefore 
become humble Suppliants to your Majesty, on the Behalf of your Sub- 
jects settled in the Province of Georgia, That your Majesty will be 
pleased to take their Preservation into your Boyal Consideration, that, 
by a necessary Supply of Forces, the Province may be protected against 
the great Dangers that seem immediately to threaten it. 

All which is most humbly submitted to your Majesty's 
great Wisdom. 

Signed by Order of the Trustees, this 
10th Day of August 1737.

that prevent the first, obstruct the latter ; for though the Situation of 
this Place is exceedingly well adapted for Trade, and, if it was encour- 
aged, might be much more improved by the Inhabitants, yet the Diffi- 
culties and Restrictions which we hitherto have, and at present do labour 
under, debar us from that Advantage. Timber is the only thing we 
have here which we might export ; and notwithstanding we are obliged 
to fall it in planting our Land, yet we cannot manufacture it fit for a 
foreign Mariset, but at double the Expence of other Colonies ; as for 
Instance, The River of May, which is but Twenty Miles from us, with 
Allowance of Negroes, load Vessels with that Commodity, at One half 
of the Price that we can do ; and what should induce Persons to bring 
Ships here, when they can be loaded with one half of the Expence so 
near us? Therefore the Timber on the Land is only a continual Charge 
to the Possessors of it, though of very great Service iu all the Northern 
Colonies, where Negroes are allowed, and consequently Labour cheap. 
We do not in the least doubt, but that in time Silk and Wine may be 
produced here, especially the former ; but since the Cultivation of Land 
with White Servants only, cannot raise Provisons for our Families, as 
before mentioned, therefore it is likewise impossible to carry on these 
Manufactures according to the present Constitution. It is very well 
known, that Carolina can raise every thing that this Colony can ; and 
they having their Labour so much cheaper, will always ruin our Market, 
unless we are in some measure on a Footing with them ; and as, in both, 
the Land is worn out iu Four or Five Years, and then fit for nothing 
but Pasture, we must be always at a great deal more Expence than they, 
in clearing new Land for Planting. The Importation of Necessaries of 
Life comes to us at the most extravagant Rate; Merchants in general, 
especially of England, not being willing to supply the Settlers with 
Goods upon Commission, because no Person here can make them any 
Security of their Lands or Improvements, as is very often practised in 
other Places to promote Trade, when some of the Employer's Money 
is laid out in necessary Buildings and Improvements, fitting for the 
Trade intended, without which it cannot be carried on. The Benefit 
of the Importation therefore is all to transient Persons, who do not lay 
out any Money amongst us, but, on the contrary, carry every Penny 
out of the Place ; and the chief Reason for their enhancing the Price 
is, because they cannot get any Goods here, either on Freight or Pur- 
chase, for another Market. If the Advantages accruing from Importa- 
tion centred in the Inhabitants, the Profit thereof would naturally circu- 
late amongst us, and be laid out in Improvements in the Colony. Your 
Honors, we imagine, are not insensible of the Numbers that have left 



424 COLONIAL RECORDS. 

this Province, not being able to support themselves and Families any 
longer ; and those still remaining, who had Money of their own, and 
Credit wi;h their Friends, have laid out most of the former in Inprove- 
ments, and lost the latter doing it on such precarious Titles ; and upon 
account of the present Establishment, not above Two or Three Persons, 
except those brought on Charity, and Servants sent by you, have come 
here, for the Space of Two Years past, cither to settle Land, or encour- 
age Trade ; neither do we hear of any such likely to come, until we are 
on better Terms. 

It is true, his Majesty has been graciously pleased to grant a Regiment 
for the Defence of this Province, and our neighboring Colony, which 
indeed will very much assist us in defending ourselves against all Enemies 
then; but, otherwise, does not in the least contribute to our Support; for all 
that Part of their Pay which is expended here, is laid out with transient 
People, and our Neighbors in Carolina, who are capable to supply them 
with Provisions, and other Nece^aries, at a moderate Price, which we, 
as before observed, are not at all capable to do, upon the present Estab- 
lishment. This then being our present Condition, it is obvious what the 
Consequences must be. 

But we, for our Parts, have entirely relied on, and confided in, your 
good InteDtioDS, believing you would redress any Grievances that should 
appear; and now, by our long Experience from Industry, and continual 
Application to Improvement of Land here, do find it impossible to pur- 
sue it, or even to subsist ourselves any longer, according to the present 
Nature of the Constitution : And likewise believing you will agree to 
those Measures that are found from Experience capable to make thisColony 
succeed, and to promote which, we have consumed ourMouey, Time and 
Labour ; we do, from a sincere and true Regard to its Welfare, and in 
Duty both to you and ourselves, beg Leave to lay before your immediate 
Consideration, the Two following chief .Causes of these our present Mis- 
fortunes, and this deplorable State of the Colony, and which we are 
certain, if granted, would be an infallible Remedy for both. 

I. The Want of a free Title or Fee-simple to our Lands ; which, if 
granted, would both occasion great Numbers of new Settlers to come 
amongst us, and likewise encourage those who remain here, chearfully to 
proceed in making further Improvements, as well to retrieve their sunk 
Fortunes, as to make Provision for their Posterity. 

II. The Want of the Use of Negroes with proper Limitations ; which 
if granted, would both induce great Numbers of White People to come 
here, and also render us capable to subsist ourselves by raising ProviBiona 
upon our Lands, until we could make some Produce fit for Export, and 



COLONIAL RECORDS.

in Bome measure to balance our Importation, We are very sensible of 
tbe Inconveniencies and Mischiefs that have already, and do daily arise, 
from an unlimited Use of Negroes ; but we are as sensible, that these 
may be prevented by a due Limitation, such as so many to each White 
Man, or so many to such a Quantity of Land ; or in any other manner 
which your Honours shall think most proper. By granting us, Gentle- 
men, the.ee two Particulars, and such other Privileges an his Majesty's 
most dutiful Subjects in America enjoy, you will not only prevent our 
impending Ruin, but, we are fully satisfied also, will soon make this the 
most flourishing Colony possessed by his Majesty in America, and your 
Memories will be perpetuated to all future Ages, our latest Posterity 
sounding your Praises, as their first Founders, Patrons and Guardians ; 
but if by denying us those Privileges, we ourselves and Families are not 
only ruined, but even our Posterity likewise, you will always be men- 
tioned as the Cause and Authors of all their Misfortunes and Calamities ; 
which we hope will never happen.

NUMBER IX. 

We are informed, that our Neighbors of Savannah have petitioned 
your Excellency for the Liberty of having Slaves. We hope, and 
earnestly entreat, that before such Proposals are hearkened unto, your 
Excellency will consider our Situation, and of what dangerous and bad 
Consequence such Liberty would be of to us, for many Seasons ; 

I. The Nearness of the Spaniard, who have proclaimed Freedom to 
all Slaves who run away from their Masters, makes it impossible for us 
to keep them without more Labour in guarding them, that what we 
would be at to do their Work. 

II. We are laborious, and know that a White Man may be by the 
Year more usefully employed than a Negro. 

III. We are not rich, and becoming Debtors for Slaves, in case of 
their running away or dying, would inevitably ruin the poor Master, and 
he become a greater Slave to the Negro Merchant, than the Slave he 
bought could be to him. 

IV. It would oblige us to keep a Guard-duty at least as severe as 
when: we expected a daily Invasion ; and if that was the Case, how 
miserable would it be to us, and our Wives and Families, to have an 
Enemy without, and more dangerous ones in our Bosom I 

V. It's shocking to human Nature, that any Race of Mankind, and 
their Posterity, should be sentenced to perpetual Slavery ; nor in Justice 
can we think otherwise of it, than they are thrown amongst us tg be our 
Scourge one Day or another for our Sins ; and as Freedom to them must 
be as dear as to us, what a Scene of Horror must it bring about ! And 
the longer it is unexecuted, the bloody Scene must be the greater. We 
therefore, for our own sakes, our Wives and Children, and our Posterity, 
beg your Consideration, and intreat, that instead of introducing Slaves, 
you'll put us in the way to get us some of our Countrymen, who with 
their Labour in time of Peace, and our Vigilance, if we are invaded* 
with the Help of those, will render it a difficult thing to hurt us, or that 
Part of the Province we possess. We will for ever pray for your Excel- 
lency, and are, with all Submission,

Ebenezer, 13th of March 1739. 

We, Saltzburghers and Inhabitants of Ebenezer, that have signed this 
Letter, intreat humbly, in our and our Brethrens Names, your Excellency 
would be pleased to shew us the Favor of desiring the honorable Trus- 
tees for sending to Georgia another Transport of Saltzburghers to be set- 
tled at Ebenezer. We have, with one Accord, wrote a Letter to our 
Father in God, the Reverend Mr. Senior Urlsperger, at Augspurg, and 
in that Letter expressly named those Saltzburghers and Austrians, whom, 
as our Friends, Relations and Countrymen, we wish to see settled here. 
We can, mdeed, attest of them, that they fear the Lord truly, love 
Working, and will conform themselves to our Congregation : We have 
given them an Account of our being settled well ; and being mighty well 
pleased with the Climate and Condition of this Country, having here 
several Preferences in spiritual and temporal Circumstances, for other 
People in Germany, which your Honour will find in the here inclosed 
Copy of our Letter to Mr. Senior Urlsperger ; if they fare as we do, 
having been provided in the Beginning with Provisions, a little Stock 
of Breed, some Tools, and good Land, by the Care of the honourable 
Trustees ; and if God grants his Blessing to their Work, we doubt not, 
but they will gain with us easily their Bread and Subsistance, and lead 
a quiet and peaceable Life, in all Godliness and Honesty. Though it is 
here a hotter Season than our native Country is, yet not so extreamely 
hot, as we were told on the first time of our Arrival ; but since we have 
been now used to the Country, we find it tolerable, and, for working Peo- 
ple, very convenient ; setting themselves to work early in the Morning, 
till Ten o'Clock; and in the Afternoon, from Three to Sun-set; and 
having Business at Home, we do them in our Huts and Houses, in the 
Middle of the Day, till the greatest Heat is over. People in Germany 
are hindered by Frost and Snow in the Winter, from doing any Work 



COLONIAL RECORDS. 429 

in the Fields and Vineyards ; but we have this Preference, to do the 
most and heaviest Work at such a time, preparing the Ground sufficiently 
for planting in the Spring : We were told by several People, after our 
Arrival, that it proves quite impossible and dangerous for White People 
to plant and manufacture any Rice, being a Work only for Negroes, not for 
European People ; but having Experience of the contrary, we laugh at 
such a Talking, seeing that several People of us have had, in the last 
Harvest, a greater Crop of Rice than they wanted for their own Con- 
sumption. If God is pleased to enable us by some Money for building 
such Mills, convenient ior cleaning the Rice, as we use in Germany, for 
making several Grains, fit for eating, then the Manufacture of Rice will be 
an easy and profitable thing. For the present, we crave your Excellency's 
Goodness to allow, for the Use of the whole Congregation, some Rice 
Sieves, of several Sorts, from Charles-Town, which cannot be had at Sa- 
vannah : We will be accountable to the Store for them. Of Com, 
Pease, Potatoes, Pomkins, Cabbage &c. we had such a good Quantity, 
that many Bushels are sold, and much was spent in feeding Cows, Calves 
and Hogs. . If the Surveyor, according to his Order and Duty, had used 
Dispatch in laying out our Farms, (which we have got not sooner than 
last Fall) item, if not, we all were disappointed by long Sickness, and 
planting the yellow Peusilvania Corn ; we would have been able, by the 
Blessing of God, to spare a greater Quantity of Grain for getting Meat- 
kind and Cloaths, of which we are in Want. It is true, that Two Acres 
of Ground, for each Family's Garden, are set some time ago ; but being 
there very few Swamps fit for planting of Rice, and some Part of them 
wanting a good deal of Dung, we were not able, in the Beginning, to 
dung it well ; therefore we could not make such a good Use of those 
Acres, as we now have Reason to hope, by the Assistance of God, after 
our Plantations are laid out : Hence it will be, that we plant the good 
Ground first, improve the other Soil :then, when Occasion will require 
it, in the best manner we can. In the first Time, when the Ground must 
be cleared from Trees, Bushes and Roots, and fenced in carefully, we 
are to undergo some hard Labour, which afterwards will be the easier 
and more pleasing, when the hardest Trial is over, and our Plantations 
are better regulated. A good deal of Time was spent in building Huts, 
Houses, and other necessary Buildings, in Town, and upon the Farms ; 
and since, we wanted Money for several Expences ; several Persons of us 
hired themselves out for some Weeks for building the Orphan-house, and 
its Appurtenances ; item. The Reverend Mr. Gronau's House, which hap- 
pened to be built in the hottest Summer Season ; and now some of us are 
employed to build the Reverend Mr. Bolzius's House ; which Buildings

have taken away some time from our Work in the Ground ; but the fair 
Opportunity of earning some Money at Home, was a great Benefit to 
us ; this now being so, that neither the hot Summer Season, nor any 
thing else, hinders us from Work in the Ground, and we wish to lead a 
quiet and peaceable Life at our Place. We humbly beseech the honour- 
able Trustees not to allow it, that any Negro might be brought to our 
Place, or in our Neighborhood, knowing by Experience, that Houses and 
Gardens will be robbed always by them, and White People are in Danger 
of Life because of them, besides other great Inconveniences. Likewise we 
humbly beseech you and the Trustees not to allow to any Person the Liberty 
of buying up Lands at our Place, by which, if granted, it would hap- 
pen, that by bad and turbulent Neighbours our Congregation would be 
spoilt, and poor harmless People troubled and oppressed : But we wish 
and long for such Neighbours to be settled here, whose Good-name and 
honest Behaviour is known to us and our Favourers. The Honourable 
Trustees have been always Favourers and Protectors of poor and dis- 
tressed People ; wherefore we beseech you and them, they would be 
pleased to take us further under their fatherly Care, that the Remem- 
brance of their Benevolence and Kinduess to our Congregation might 
be conveyed to our late Posterity, and be highly praised. We put up our 
Prayers to God for rewarding your Excellency, and the Honorable Trus- 
tees, manifold for all their good Assistance and Benefits, which are be- 
stowed upon us, and beg humbly the Continuance of your and their 
Favour and Protection, being, with the greatest Submission and Respect, 

Your Honours 

Most Obedient Dutiful Servants, 

Inhabitants at Ebenezer.
