1706, Guidance to Haiti civil governor on status of slaves
Acte de notorieté donné par monsieur le lieutenant civil sur la question si dans l’isle de Saint Dominque en Amerique les Esclaves Negres sont
immeubles: n.a., tp+3-4, Paris, Imp. Jean Baptiste Coignard, royal printer, 1706. (This text is similar in nature to what would be, in the U.S. legal
system, an attorney general’s opinion, an authoritative administrative ruling on a question of law posed by a lower ranking official. In this case the
senior local official in the French colony of Saint Domingue is querying Paris as to whether under French law black slaves could be treated as inheritable
property. The response is in the affirmative. (Lacks TC & index.)
