To the Printer of the Royal Gazette.
Many 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.
For 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.
In 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.
I am, Sir,
Your Obedt. Servt.
A Friend to Trade.
