home consumption of our unmanufactured and there is a bounty given for exportation would it not be better to take the duty off the home as it would enable the manufacturers to work cheaper for foreign mar kets and if the bounty for exportation of unmanu factured leather was taken might it not anfwer the duty At leaft the additional confumption of our manufactured commodities might more than anfwer the difference and if foreigners want our unmanu factured would it be even imprudent toput a duty on our unmanufactured leather to be exported for this would hinder foreigners from manufacturing cheaper than fr every advantage ought to be given to our own Many more fjngubr advantages might be men but as they will naturally appear when thit plan is put into fo I will forbear to men tion but
