This summary of the plant-quarantine import restrictions of the
Presidency of Antigua, B. 7. I, has been prepared for the information
of nurserymen, plant quarantine officials, and others interested in the
exportation of plants and plant products to that island.

The summary was prepared by Harry B. Shaw, Pathologist in Charge,

and reviewed by the Agricultural Superintendent, of the Colony of the
Leeward Islands.

The information contained in this circular is believed to be

intended to be used independently of, nor as a substitute for, the
original text of the proclamation, and it is not to be interpreted as
legally authoritative. The proclamation itself should be consulted for
