Ithily.a- That admepiadul t of t"his SjObfeti, and et say dobt tht
itt attendd sha Pnat&Osilimty Iof Its e Ametole in itlf fal ateat,

the whole Plan does conseit of su a variety of Establishments, &

necessarily leads to such extensive Operations, as to bring on an

increasing Rpence, which in point of Oommeroe may exceed the Value of

the Object to which it applies and being greater than the Trade can

bear, aust, if the present Plan should be permanent, either fall upon

the Colonies, in which Case it will be iapracticable to settle the

Proportion / eah Colony should bear, or beooe a Burthen upon this

Country, which, we humbly conceive, would be both unreasonable and

highly inconvenient*
For these Reasons therefore and under these Circumotenoes, We

are humbly of Opinion that the laying aside that part of the present

Plan which relates to the Indian Trades & intrusting the entire Manage-

enat of that Trade to the Colonies theaeelves, will be of great Advan-

tge to Your Majesty's service, as a means of avoiding much Difficulty

and saving auah xpenoe both at present and in future.

It ia certainly true, that, while the Managemset of this Trade

was in the hands of the Colonies, antecedent to the Establishment of

Superintendents, many Abuses were committed by the Traders, little Care

was taken to subject them to proper Begulations, and the Misconduct of

the Colonies in this particular contributed not a little to involve us in

the enormous sxpenoes of an Indian War.

If therefore it were probable that the like Neglect or Mit-
manaeament would again take place la such a degree ,to expose us to the

ens Oonsequenoes, We should not hesitate in declaring our Opinion

against the Propriety of suffering the Management of this Concern fever

to revert into the Bands of the Colonies. But We trust, that the

Experience, which the Old Colonies have had of the ill Effeats of euch

Inattention and Neglect, will induce all of them to use more Caution &
