Descrizione

The story of. The q,uarrels among the early colonists and the sufferings: they endured from the depredations of the Spanish Buccaneers would be too long for me to tell and although they grew and prospered there is nothing of special interest to Americans in that part of their history until the time of our Revoluntionary War. Then their sympathy for us was'shown in a most practical way, for when General 'wash ington, before the evacuation oi Boston, heard that a quantity of ammunition Was Stored in a remote part of the islands, he wrote to some prominent Bermudians telling of his'great needand his wish to purchase the powder; thev rez nlied that he should have it, and the powder came in time but so secretly that how it was brought to this country was k'nown only to those actuallv engaged in the transfer. In later times. Congress granted the. Right to export provision to Bermuda in return for this act of kindness to the colonies in their struggle for independence.
