Excerpt from Calendar of State Papers, Vol. 43: Colonial Series America and West Indies Preserved in the Public Record Office

On the other hand, the historical relationship of Georgia to other colonies and to the wider themes of colonial history argues cogently for the inclusion of these records. This is especially so in the years before the outbreak of war in 1739. Apart from Gibraltar, Georgia was the only land-frontier between British and Spanish possessions; Spain did not recognize the existence of the new colony on land over which she claimed sovereignty. As early as 1737 there were widespread apprehensions of an attack upon Georgia from Florida. (see, for example, index to the present volume under Georgia, Foreign Rela tions; South Carolina; Spain and the Spaniards) It is an obvious convenience to the historian that these expressions of anxiety in and about Georgia should be calendared and indexed in a volume which also contains material illustrating the fear of Spanish aggressions in Jamaica, the Bahamas and the British West Indian colonies generally.

The decision to include the Georgia records adds greatly to the number of papers in this volume. Of the 662 principal abstracts, 277 derive from the correspondence, minutes and memorials of the Georgia Society. Inevitably some of these papers have a less general historical significance than those of long-established crown colonies. But the domestic minutiae of Georgia may be expected to diminish in later volumes.
