8267. TARIFF, Prohibitory.—

Duties of
from ten to twenty per cent. on articles of
heavy carriage, prevent their importation.
They eat up all the profits of the merchant,
and often subject him to loss. This has been
much the case with respect to turpentine, tar
and pitch, which are principal articles of remittance
from the State of North Carolina.
It is hoped that it will coincide with the views
of the government * * * to suppress the
duties on these articles, which of all others
can bear them least.—
To Count de Montmorin. Washington ed. ii, 175. Ford ed., iv, 402.
(P. 1787)
