people seem so firmly persuaded of the utility of having something of the
nature of a Public Exchange established in this Town, that I wonder no
endeavours are exerted to this end, now that it is generally admitted we are in
a state of progressive improvement here. And as I believe a plan of this kind
onec set a going would be readily assented to and approved of by the whole
Community, I am prompted to use the medium of your paper in recommendation of
it. People are quickly directed by a love of variety and intelligence to
resort to particular places, and a 'Change would, of all, be the most likely,
where these are to be found, and those who have business to consult upon and
arrage, would not be spending their whole morning in pursuit of each other
through our extensive Town, as is now frequently done, from the want of one
fixed palce and hour to rendezvous - to people of business indeed it would be
extremely useful to have a kind of 'Change to go to at a fixed period of the
day, and it should therefore be designed to answer more immediately their
convenience, when they had noce fallen into the custom of meeting together; it
would be found an agreeabel amusement, and answer many good purposes.
persons in Town deing business of any consequence to agree to meet every day
from two to three o'clock, (unless particular reasons or absence prevented
attendance), under the Trees in front of Vlissingen Estate, or elsewhere; and
when the rains set in, at the Union Coffee House, would be a very simple plan
to adopt; and great conveniency in business would arise from it. Such
conferences betwixt individuals in Business would conciliate and prevent
differences and disputes, by regulating the practices and forms of Trade to a
decisive Standard; and a character of worth and integrity would naturally
attach itself to those persons who were frequent on 'Change. A more general
acequaintance and confidence would ensue from it, prices of Goods at Market,
and of Procduce, arrivals and departures of vessels, Freight, Rates of Exchange,
would then be better understood; and pitiful, private, underhand dealings would
be scouted from amongst us.
the infancy of the Colony we were obliged to rub on the best way we could, but
its present condition excites a prouder feeling and as a friend of good
Institutions, I venture to step forward in support and in recommendation of
this [illegible]. Some well-informed Person, of influence amongs us,
[illegible] be encouraged to follow it up, by opening a Book of Subscription at
your Office, or at the Union Coffee House, [illegible] signatures to enter into
such an amicable well-meant agreement - and if so, I feel persuaded, he would
be assisted by [illegible] of the respectable characters in Town to carry it
into [illegible] as early as possible.
