'There are on it three hundred negros, of whom nearly one-third are Baptists'; 'This estate is managed on a liberal plan; although few of the old allowances are continued.' Ibid. p. 221: the authors refer to Oxford and Cambridge as 'two estates belonging to a liberal proprietor in England.' Ibid. p. xlviii: on Cambridge, 'we know we got a good massa in England, and we wish to do everything to oblige him; but if the overseer continues to worry us none of the apprentices will remain when the time is up'.

Edward B. Moulton Barrett given in St James 651 as of Sidmouth, Devon.
