A state of the British sugar-colony trade Shewing, that an additional duty of twelve shillings per 112 pounds weight may be laid upon brown or muscovado sugar (and proportionably higher duties upon sugar refined before imported) without making sugar dearer in this kingdom than it hath been of late years, and without distressing the British sugar-planters; for their profits will then be twice as much money per acre of land, as the landholders of England receive for their estates. All which matters are plainly made appear, and the vast losses which this kingdom hath suffered by the sugar-colony trade, within thirty years last past, are particularly pointed out. Most humbly submitted to the consideration of the Honourable House of Commons. By J. Massie
