Trouble is How You Meet It, Walter Gill , extract autobiography

This extract describes the difficulties associated with managing the labour-force of a sugar plantation and mill. The hiring of sidars (Indian overseers), an attempted strike and a serious dispute over wages are all related, with Gill achieving a small victory over his workforce in each case. However, he is also misled into poisoning a worker and at the end of the extract he reveals his young age: "In the September of that year I was twenty-two".
