Annotation. Lady Nugent's husband was governor of Jamaica, the most important of the highly prized British sugar colonies, during a critical period of the Napoleonic Wars. Her entertaining personal diary conveys fresh impressions of life among the slave-owning colonial gentry, and a distinguished American scholar has called it "an utterly inimitable and imperishable picture of planter society."The Journal was first published by the Institute of Jamaica in 1907 and a fourth (revised) edition was issued in 1966, and has been out of print for decades. This paperback reprint is designed for those scholars and general readers who have been requesting copies for years.
