Summary
The arrival of six individuals in the province, three Anglo-Americans, one Spaniard, and two slaves, cause great disquiet among the Spanish officials. The six are taken into custody and claim to be traders, friendly to the Spanish crown, who would like to set up business in the province. but the officials suspect them of being military. They are interrogated, their belongings and documents scrutinized; the Spanish officials become even more startled when a letter written in English by one of the detainees evades their scrutiny. The foreigners are held under tight security, pending further action. (Lloyd Kendall) (1980)
