3152. FRANCE, Manufactures of.—[continued].

A century's experience
has shown that we double our numbers every
twenty or twenty-five years. No circumstance
can be foreseen. at this moment, which
will lessen our rate of multiplication for centuries
to come. For every article of the
productions and manufactures of France,
then, which can be introduced into the habit
there, the demand will double every twenty
or twenty-five years. And to introduce the
habit, we have only to let the merchants alone.—
To Count de Montmorin. Washington ed. ii, 190.
