Nathan Lucas kept a journal of a nine-month trip to Demerara and back, visiting his cotton plantation in 1803. He described the economy and the flora and fauna that he saw in the Dutch colony, as well as his sea journeys, including a severe storm when his ship lost all the masts and sails. He was a keen naturalist and a Fellow of the Linnean Society.Views: 241 | Enquiries: 3
