A protest against the proposed ban on trade with the French and Dutch sugar islands. Discusses value of the British North American colonies to the empire, and warns that the ban would impoverish New England in particular. The essay went through several contemporary printings; this is the one with a first line reading "These Colonies consist of a large Tract of Land on the Northern Continent of America." We trace only two other copies of any edition at auction since 1935. European Americana 731/37; Sabin 11315. Provenance: from the stock of Ernest Wessen's Midland Books; see his 1959 catalog #82, item 63.
