Edward Hyde Clark was an estate owner in Jamaica under the premiership of Sir Charles Edward Grey, Governor of Jamaica following the sharp loss of British control over the island, and loss of property and life following the slave revolt, known as the Baptist War. Following this rebellion in 1831, the British Parliament held two enquiries, which resulted in the serious contribution to the abolition of slavery as of August 1, 1834. The Jamaican slaves were however still bound to their former owners but were granted certain rights until 1838 under what was called the Apprenticeship System. Slaves, despite being part of a freed population, still faced significant hardships, however Sir Charles Grey sought to maintain this agreement of trust and freedom for the slaves of Jamaica, despite attempts to perpetuate the slave system. Hyde similarly sought to understand these terms, and this document shows how it is time for the British Empire to bow to its colonies and show them the respect and honour they deserve. See 18354.
