Comments…...... Parrots in underprint, Samuel Sharpe,
national hero , periwinkle flower and morning glory flower on
front. Samuel Sharpe was an educated town slave who became leader
of the native Baptist church in Montego Bay, and used religious
meetings to organize activities for the slaves. Sharpe expressed
his concerns about events in England which affected the slaves and
Jamaica, and devised a plan of passive resistance in which the
slaves would refuse to work on Christmas Day of 1831 and
afterwards, unless their grievances were heard and accepted by the
estate owners and managers. When some of the planters heard of
Sharpe's plan, troops and warships were sent to Montego Bay and
Black River. On 27 December 1831, Kensington Estate Great House, in
St James, was set on fire. This signaled the start of the slave
rebellion which lasted eight days and resulted in the deaths of 14
whites and more than 500 slaves. On 23 May 1832, Sam Sharpe was
hanged at the parade in Montego Bay, now renamed Sam Sharpe Square.
Periwinkle flowers and Doctor's Cave Beach, Montego Bay on reverse.
The world-famous Doctor's Cave Beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica, was
originally owned by Dr. Alexander James McCathy. He and his father,
who was also a physician, as well as other medical friends , had
used the beach as a spa. Access to the beach was through a cave.
For that reason, it became widely known as the Doctor's Cave. In
1906, Dr. McCathy donated the property to be used as a public
beach. Watermark: Red-billed streamertailed hummingbird. Note size:
