EARLIEST RECORDED LETTER written at LOUBIERE during the SEVEN YEARS WAR, Dominica postal history
1759 entire letter datelined at base of second page "Loubiere, Dom/que Le 8 Avril 1759" addressed to Capt. Brough of the Marines on board Her Majesty's Ship Panther (St. Rupert's Bay, Dominica). Contents in French, signed by G. Mayne St. Luce, discuss the increased prices of provisions which prevent him fulfilling Capt. Brough's order, remarking in particular on the scarcity and expensiveness of sea fish; he is, however, able to forward a cheese. Remarkably fine condition and a rare internal mail survivor with unusual content. (The previous earliest letter was written Dominica NO 10 1763 ex Nabarro 3/1975 R90, Sugarman 3/1994 R552 during the first British occupation as Dominica ceded to Britain by the Treaty of Paris FE 10 1762, the French settlers retaining their estates).
H.M.S. Panther, a 60 gun ship under Captain Molyneux Shuldham, was part of the fleet under Commodore Moore which captured Guadeloupe on JA 24 1759, during the Seven Years' War. Several ships, including H.M.S. Panther, were then detached from the fleet and proceeded to Prince Rupert's Bay at Dominica, in order to observe and follow the newly arrived French fleet which contained troops for the relief of the French islands in the West Indies. Mail from this theatre of war with campaign connection is virtually unknown. (Loubiere is in the south of the island near Roseau; Prince Rupert's Bay is in the north).
