MONDAY, February 14 l743 To the P U B L I C K. E.pay about 2000001. yearly for the ufelefs Article of - Cambricks, which in part may befupplied from Scotland and Ireland, and the Deficiency made up with Bengal Goods, which will ferye all Purpofes full as well, and not coft the Nation above onefixth Part of the Money which we pay to France for that Commodity,, befides the political Confidera-iion of enriching by .this Folly the greateft Rivals we have, tvho would forbid, immediately the taking from us any ufelefs Article, were it ever fo tricing a Drain from them. They are fo fcnfible of the Advantage they reap by felling-us this Article of Cambricks, that not one Yard of it is even fo much as wore in France, in lieu of which they very wifely ufe Muflins from the Eajl-Indies. Every B^dy hefe. is fenfible of this, and that a Prohibition wpuld be moft ppular and agreeable to the Nation. A Prohibition of the Wear of them is meant* for if the Import only is forbid, or a higher Duty laid on them,. they'll be fmuggled, and confequently as much-wore as ever. If it be a&'d, how will the 12000L be made good which the Duty upon Cambrich now brings in ytearly ; the Anfwer is, that the Duty on the India Goods which will be wore in their (bad, being about 40 per Cent, will bring in four or five times tljat Sum. It fhould be remember'd, that if the Legiflatujfc fliould not think fit at this time to let this Prohibition take Place, it's in the Power of a few in high Rank, by their Example, to do it effectually,- by difcountenancing the Wear of them.
