Description

Slavery – Chinese Slavery in Cuba rare document dated 1868 for a Chinese slave, 1p folio, partially printed with ms insertions, and marked to base in print ‘Gratis’ – showing that the Chinese slave worker was not paid for his work. This is an extremely rare version of this type of document. Although they were slaves, Chinese workers were actually usually paid for their work, though this was less than African or Cuban criollo (or native) slaves. Few examples of this type of document exist.
