SMUGGLED MAIL to a large scale slave-owner during the FRENCH OCCUPATION, Tobago postal history
1792 clean entire with clearly written contents to Caldwell Craig Esq., Tobago from a dutiful and affectionate niece to her uncle and docketted "30 June 1792". No mention of origin but starts "Your kind letter My Dear Uncle by Mr. Olivers Vessel gave us all great pleasure but particularly my poor Aunt who begins to grow very anxious about you as the time draws near for your arrival".
Tobago was captured MY 23 1781 by the French Admiral Compte de Grasse. By the Treaty of Versailles SP 3 1783 Tobago remained French and gradually had to change from a captured British island to a French colony. On AP 14 1793 Tobago was taken by British troops who had arrived under Major General Cornelius Cuyler with a squadron under Vice Admiral John Laforey who landed at Courland Bay with few losses (war in the West Indies began with this event).
