But I have said that the system nominally called "free trade," so earnestly and eloquently recommended to our adoption, is a mere revival of the British colonial system, forced upon us by Great Britain during the existence of our colonial vassalage.
The whole system is fully explained and illustrated in a work published as far back as the year 1750, entitled "The trade and navigation of Great Britain considered by Joshua Gee," with extracts from which I have been furnished by the diligent researches of a friend.
It will be seen from these, that the South Carolina policy now, is identical with the long-cherished policy of Great Britain, which remains the same as it was when the thirteen colonies were part of the British empire.
