A letter written from Cape Francois (St. Domingo/Hayti) dated March 22, 1801 and published in the May 2, 1801 issue of Poulson's American Daily Advertiser (Philadelphia). Here's what the letter said, "An agent from France, by way of New York, brought an appointment to General Touissant, empowering him to act as prefect over the whole island. The Blacks are now so numerous and powerful, that they will continue to appoint chiefs of their own. It is certainly their intention to hold the Island independent of the French, which I think they will be able to do."
