Description

Excerpt from An Address to the Members of Both Houses of Parliament on the West India Question O The well-known Resolutions of 1823, which form the groundwork for colonial legislation were passed at a period of great commercial, political, and intellectual excitement. All the scars of a long-protracted war seemed to be efl'aced. The nation was supposed to be advancing with a ra pidity unparalleled in her most prosperous annals. The momentous services she had performed, and the high station she had attained amongst neigh bouring states, gave her, it was conceived, vast additional means for wielding her natural re sources with effect; and in the buoyant heedless ness of prosperity, a desire arose totally to change her system of commercial policy; a change which, in principle, implied the inutility of her colonies and those distant possessions which had been mainly conducive to all her successes.
