Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Ulster Journal of Archaeology, 1861, Vol. 9

Scotchmen as intruders, and the Scotch hated them in turn because they were papists. The strife was rapidly mining the island, and had already destroyed its credit as a place of trade. Of the two parties, the Scotchmen were the more violent and difficult to conciliate; but Lord Ma cartney knew better how to manage them than perhaps any other man of his day. He lost no time in allaying and adjusting the dissensions; his measures gave satisfaction to both parties, and he had soon the pleasure of witnessing the happiest results, both publickly and privately, throughout the colony. But this happy re-establishment of order was soon afterwards overthrown by a French invasion, which Lord Macartney bravely, but fruitlessly, endeavoured to resist. His lordship was taken prisoner, and plundered of all his personal property, together with many valuable papers, which he could never afterwards recover. Although Grenada was lost, his defence of it had been heroic, and, on his return to England, he met with a very gracious reception from the King and the nation. The British legislature granted forthwith to the island of Grenada, though occupied by the French, the indulgence of permitting the importation of sugars and other produce into Great Britain, and this boon was granted because of the gallant resistance made by Lord Macartney at the head of his little force, composed principally of inhabitants of the island.
