This fund was established in conjunction with new slave control regulations and restricted slave trade after Captain Guillaume Duparc, commandant of the Pointe Coupée Post,learned in April of 1795 of a plot by local slaves to force their masters into giving them their freedom. At that time, Duparc immed. sent out three patrols to arrest the slaves suspected of planning the revolt. Soon afterwards, several negroes and mulattos were arrested and jailed.
