17 June 1734 To Hon. Lords of Trade from CAPTAIN MATHEW

“I know not what to do with the inhabitants of Anguilla, Spanish Town and Tortola. They live like so many bandits in open defiance to the laws of God and Man. Whilst I was in England they pirated upon a Spanish ship wrecked on --- ANOGADA – as they always do on such occasions and did such (damage) to Men of Distinction and their lady’s on board, as I cannot without blushing recollect myself; much less repeat to our (loss).

“As for being under Government they are out of all notion of that. (From time to time Deputy Governor among them have been appointed by HM Chief Governor of these islands but these have no authority over them but what they are able to enforce with a cudgel. He that is at Anguilla now writes me he cannot nor will continue such among such reprobates any longer.

“The Deputy Governor of Spanish Town is the deepest and most infamous of the plunderers of the Spanish ship I last mentioned and I know not how to mend him with a Better.

“At Tortola the last Deputy Governor died, one PAZEA was recommended as the least Rogue among them, others said he would not accept etc. (my note: gives a bit about PAZEA) asking for four Justices to go through these lawless Islands once or twice a year, the Judges go Circuits as in England, etc.

“Yesterday a person came from Tortola and the Dutch Island of St. Eustatius, assured me a large ship arrived at St. Thomas with the Commission to one, LA MOTTE, formerly Governor of St. Thomas, to be Governor and 250 soldiers to settle St. Croix and that --- daily expected a Danish Man-of-War to cover their settling.”
