Secondly, The Establishment Of A Sovereign Tribunal At St Domingo, The Members Of Which Had Large Salaries, Induced Some Considerable Persons Of More Advanced Age And Experience To Go There, In Whose Train A Number Of Young People Of Quality Went Over In Search Of Profitable Or Honourable Employments.
