Kingston, 1st May, 1823.

Masters of Vessels and others concerned in the trade carried on with the United States of America, are informed that the only articles which can henceforth be imported from that country in foreign crafts, are enumerated in Schedule B of the Act of the Imperial Parliament, 3d Geo IV, Chap. 119? Such other articles as are permitted to be imported, must be conveyed in British vessels. Six cents per ton is chargeable on foreign vessels exceeding 50 tons measurement, coming into the harbours of this Province and no tonnage duty is payable on those of smaller dimensions; and vessels belonging to subjects of this Province, trading with the United States, are by the laws of that country, admitted into their Ports upon payment of the like duty. (with Schedule B attached)

C.A. Hagerman, Collector.
