Extract from Thomas Roughley's 'The Jamaica Planter's Guide,' a manual for those wishing to establish sugar plantations in Jamaica in the early 19th century. This chapter suggests ways of treating the slaves working on the plantations so that they might be at their most productive. There are detailed descriptions of the jobs of every worker on the plantation from the Head Driver and the Head Boiler through to members of the field gangs and midwives.
