Title

Copies des Pièces des Agens du Gouvernement Français

Description

(In French) This pamphlet contains two letters written and signed by “Malouet,”who at the time of writing was the French minister of the navy. Both letters address and give instructions to three individuals who have volunteered to aid the French crown in Haiti and to forge connections with local leaders about the reinstallation of monarchical authority. Part French response to the Haitian Revolution, part political machination, this pamphlet defies easy categorization in large part because its publication—in Haiti, by order of the Haitian ruler—raises questions about its intentions and authenticity.
