"Very interesting letter from Laisné de Villeveque to Cyrille Bisette (1795-1858) Black politician and abolitionist born in Martinique, he was involved in the so called "Bissette affaire" who anti-slavery activities begin to be radicalized about this time. Bisette was born July 9, 1795 at Fort Royal (now Fort-de France) Martinique, and died on January 22, 1858 in Paris. He was a leader of efforts to abolish slavery in the French Colonies and member of the National Assembly from Martinique from 1848-1851." -The New Antiquarian
