5062. MARKETS, Exclusion from.—[continued].

Besides the duties * * * [the acts of Parliament] impose on our
articles of export and import they prohibit
our going to any markets northward of Cape
Finisterre, in the Kingdom of Spain, for the
sale of commodities which great Britain will
not take from us, and for the purchase of
others, with which she cannot supply us; and
that, for no other than the arbitrary purpose
of purchasing for themselves, by a sacrifice of
our rights and interests, certain privileges in
their commerce with an allied State, who, in
confidence, that their exclusive trade with
America will be continued, while the principles
and power of the British Parliament
be the same, have indulged themselves in
every exorbitance which their avarice could
dictate or our necessity extort; have raised

their commodities called for in America, to
the double and treble of what they sold for,
before such exclusive privileges were given
them, and of what better commodities of the
same kind would cost us elsewhere; and, at
the same time, give us much less for what
we carry thither, than might be had at more
convenient ports.—
