9110. WHALE OIL, Markets for.—

am trying here [Paris] to get contracts for the
supplying the cities of France with whale oil
by the Boston merchants. It would be the
greatest relief possible to that State, whose
commerce is in agonies, in consequence of being
subjected to alien duties on their oil, in Great
Britain, which has, heretofore, been their only
market. Can anything be done in this way in
Spain? Or do they light their streets there in
the night?—
