Jean Pierre Boyer, President de la République d' Haiti.

The present peaceful state of the island, and the fair prospects before the Haytiens, of having their Independence acknowledged by other nations, indicated that the great obstacles in the way of emigration there, which had hitherto existed, were removed and that the time had now come to aid our coloured population to plant themselves under the mild climate of that Island, were it encouraged by the Haytien government.
