An important address by the Provincial Assembly of Saint Domingue to the National Assembly reflecting the influence of the fall of the Bastille in the colony and the general apprehension over the General (Colonial) Assembly's alignment with the Crown. Critical to an understanding of the influence of revolutionary ideas among the colonial proletariat as the Provincial Assembly hastened to include representatives of all classes of the white population. Stoddard, THE FRENCH REVOLUTION IN SAN DOMINGO, p.91.
