TO THE READER.
If thou do'st
The aim of this Twenty-fourth Edition is to Record the PROGRESS OF TRADE in every part of the World—so as to show, at one view, as far as practicable, its precise State and Bearings.
This no other Work-Domestic or Foreign-even attempts.
“Destitute of this Elementary Instruction"_as expressed by the Edinburgh Review — "the wonder is, not that Merchants should sometimes calculate wrong ; but that they should ever calculate right.”
By preserving Copies of the Journal, they will, it is trusted, become a valuable Record of the State of Trade in by-gone times; and thus every year will increase their value.
The reception of the last Edition, in particular, has outstripped even the Editor's own expectation. In truth, it has penetrated to the utmost confines of the World.
That this high and honourable support will continue to increase, both at Home and Abroad, the Editor cannot suffer himself for one moment to doubt, when he considers that he acts as the humble Drudge—the PIONEER-to clear the Path through which Merchants and others may extend their COMMERCE and increase their WEALTH.
