Excerpt from Remarks on Hayti: As a Place of Settlement for Afric-Americans; And on the Mulatto as a Race for the Tropics

Dear Sir:

I have received your letter, asking for information and advice in respect to Hayti as a place of settlement for our black and colored people. I have not visited Hayti since the last inauguration of a republican form of government. My information may not therefore be of the freshest, normy advice the best, but such as they are, they shall be at your service and that of our countrymen of African blood.

I will first give you some brief account of the trades of Hayti, and then speak of its agriculture. I am aware that few of the African race, in this part of the country, have been bred to mechanical occupations. This, however, is not the case with all of them elsewhere; and besides, the subject naturally includes facts of some general interest.

The sedentary trades of the tailor and shoemaker are popular, and tolerably well supported, in the towns of Hayti, - the former the most so. The best tailoring establishment in Portau-Prince is conducted by two young men of color from one of our Southern States. The Haytiens delight in many changes of raiment, though the more wealthy import some of their clothes, and most of their boots and shoes, ready made, and the garments of the common class of people are few and simple, especially in the country.

Baking bread and biscuit is a thriving trade, as in towns no bread is baked by families.
