Excerpt from The History Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies: To Which Is Added, an Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St. Domingo, Abridged From the History Written

It is unnecessary to offer any apology for the abridgment of a performance so interesting in its nature as the original of the following work. The reader of modern history must undoubtedly regard the West Indian Islands, their discovery, their productions, and their progress in improvement, as no inconsiderable department of his inquiries; and to the political economist, it is of importance to learn the nature and extent of our commerce with so conspicuous a part of the British dominions. It must be confessed, that in a work so limited as the present, a very minute student of these subjects may not possibly find every article of information; but to the bulk of readers, it is apprehended, the utility of the work, as a relation of facts and circumstances, will be admitted. It has been the abridger's wish to omit no part of the narration that could be received; so that, satisfied with being perspicuous, he has not aimed at elegance of expression, a quality difficult to unite with a close compression of facts.
