In the brief and generally uneventful history of British East Florida greatest interest has, perhaps, attached to the two unusual experiments in colonization which were carried on in the province at New Smyrna and Rollestown. The history of both has been told by Carita Doggett Corse, 1 and to her work there is little to add. It is, however, possible to give some new light on the early difficulties which Denys Rolle met with in his attempts to establish his colony.
