Translated by a french soldier, this text was published in Ireland a few years earlier by Leslie Charles. It is about the conquest by the Spanish, of the reign of Columbus (who turned it into a marquisate) of the Buccaneers in Port Royal, of slave ships of the 18th century, a very close relationship with the French in St. Domingue. Despite some rare historical errors, this book remains a reference in the history of Jamaica.
