Lartigue had left Saint-Domingue in 1803 and assumed the position of agent pour le gouvernement de Saint-Domingue à Saint Thomas. As Jenson shows, Lartigue accused Dessalines and the Haitian government of sending emissaries to Saint-Thomas in the last four months of 1805 in order to form a “club”. Their plan, as Lartigue described in an 1815 report, was “to execute the monstrous project of descending to Martinique and Guadeloupe, to assassinate all the inhabitants, to burn the cities, to raise up the blacks and people of color, free or enslaved, and to form fourteen regiments, to become masters of and to establish the independence of these colonies”.
