The author argues that, "notwithstanding the preferential duty rate of 10s. per hundredweight enjoyed by West Indian sugar as against East Indian, the latter could be entered for internal consumption so as to afford a large profit to importers. It would be a most advantageous speculation for young men of good character and with small capital, native or European, to embark in the manufacture of sugar in Bengal." Ragatz. FIRST EDITION.
