Supplementary notes

*The livre was the form of currency used in France and its colonies in the 18th century, and was replaced by the franc in 1795, where one franc was equal to one livre and three deniers (1.0125 livres). For comparative purposes, it is important to remember that the franc was then revalued in 1960, where one new franc was equal to one hundred old francs.

The total quantity of each asset and its individual price (in livres) is as follows:
Slaves: 455,000 - 2,500 livres
Sugaries - white: 451 - 230,000 livres
Indigo plantations: 3,097 - 30,000 livres
Sugaries - brown: 341 - 180,000 livres
Coffee plantations: 2,810 - 20,000 livres
Cotton plantations: 705 - 30,000 livres
Horses and mules: 16,000 - 400 livres
Lime-kilns, brick and pottery works: 374 - 15,000 livres
