A vigorous argument in favor of trade between the United States and Europe. Bingham argues that Great Britain, especially, is in a position to promote American trade and to benefit from it. Bingham, founder and director of the Pennsylvania Bank, lived in Europe from 1784 to 1786, and the present essay, as well as his friendship with Lord Shelburne, did much to help John Adams and Benjamin Franklin secure commercial considerations from the British. This second edition from the same setting of type as the first London edition with the addition of 8-pages of publisher's ads in the rear largely comprised of works relating to America.
