T71/877: Claim by Samuel Otto Bayer, owner-in-fee.  

James A. Thome and Joseph H. Kimball, Emancipation in the West Indies: A six months' tour in Antigua, Barbadoes, and Jamaica in the year 1837 (New York, American Anit-slavery Society, 1838) p.158: the authors reflect on Samuel Otto Bayer's reversal, when he said 'I can cultivate my estate at least one-third cheaper by free labor than by slave labor'. Samuel Otto Bayer was rebuked by Mr S. Shands, Member of Assembly, for Bayer's public acknowledgement, 'for should these sentiments reach the ear of parliament, as coming from us, it might induce them to withhold the compensation.'
