COMMENT ON THE PORTUGUESE IN TRINIDAD BY THE GOVERNOR, 1869

"The Portuguese are numerically not unimportant but are neither wealthy nor influential being chiefly small shopkeepers and gardeners. Entirely destitute of all political views or objects, they would cheerfully submit to any changes which did not interfere with their making and hoarding money, but they would never take a single step to carry such changes into effect."

Gov. A.H. Gordon to Secretary of State Lord Granville, 24 May 1869 (Secret).

CO 295/247
(PRO, London)
