1794 December 22. S. Potter ALS to James D. Woolfe; Swansey, [England].
Concerning the slave trade route between southern states and Havana; "the act of Congress [the Slave Trade Act of 1794] alows the trade to George and the Southern States for Slaves, thear you can go with a cargo of Slaves without Braken the Act--and you can…make a Sham Sale and Carry your slaves to the Havana--with much less expense then you posibly can...from the W. Indies." Fears that peace will make the "guinea trade" less lucrative.
