To the Author of the General Aa>tjrt 1 seai SIR, ' ' HERE being a Bill now depending in the Hen. ' JL Hoafe of Commons for the taking off the. Prohi-' bition of Importing Spanjfh Goods the Produce of Old -' Spain; its humbly hoped the Wifdom of the Legiflature  will fo far amend the Navigation-Aft as not to permit ' them k) be brought to any of our Iflands near h"ofn'e;in ' Neutral VefTels, which would be fo detrimental to the ' Britijb Navigation ; and, at the fame Time, greatly ' enlarge the Navigation of our Neighbours, as it would ' make them the only Carriers of our Commerce ; and ' would in Time encourage them to be Purchaiers and ' Venders of them again to"us, by Reafori of their Enjoy-' ment of the Neutrality, being able now to navigate' ' much cheaper than we Nay, it would be 3 means of lup-' plying alt our Smuggler?, which "would"thereby greatly * decreafe the Revenue, and prejudice the Fair Trader j as ' it would be but a fhort Trip for them to go and putchaie ' Wines, &c. which by the late .Additional Duty, would ' encourage them to Run them in at aft 'Events. That Neu-' tral Veuels mufl be partly employ'd is certain ; but ' was this Aft to admit of no Goods, Wares, Wine?* ' Fruits and Merchandize, the Produce of O^dSpain, to ' be imported, on Forfeiture of Ship and Goods, &c. but 'what fhould'be brought 'from the Iflahd of Minorca or ' Gibraltar, on Britijh Bottoms, it would greatly anfwer ' the End of the Legiflafure � as amply promote our"Na-' vigation as if from ths very Places of. their Growth or ' Produce; quite fruflrate our Smugglers, and fufHciently ' anfwer the Merchants Supplies. ' T hope you will give this a Place in your Paper, as its ' intended with no other View, ^han the Encouragement ' of the Britijh Navigation and Fair Trader.
