Excerpt from A Permanent and Effectual Remedy Suggested for the Evils Under Which the British West Indies Now Labour: In a Letter From a West India Merchant to a West India Planter
Yet if adopted by the great number, the general advantage will soon be felt, and by none so muc... h as those who will pursue the system which can alone place the income derived from property in the British West Indies, upon a permanent security at all resembling a revenue derived from a landed estate in Europe; for that, at last, is the grand object of every West India planter.
It is now nearly a twelvemonth since the rapid decay of the British West Indies has been pressed upon the observation of the government of this country, under two successive administrations. As yet no steps have been taken to afford any substantial remedy for the evils complained of, and such measures only have been resorted to, as were capable of mere partial and temporary relief.
