WE might have conceived ourselves entitled to expect that, after the progress which the science of political economy has made, we should not, in a country which boasts of its knowledge and liberality, have had the misfortune to witness another attempt to disturb, by acts of parliament, the established order of nature in regulating the supply of the people's food.
Since the same ideas, however, and the same interests are now likely to prevail, that have prevailed in former times, what remains is, to endeavour to remove the ignorance on which false measures are always grounded; ignorance either among those who produce, or those who endure them. It is our duty, as well as the duty of all who write, to explain the subject so completely, and to make the community so well acquainted with the fallacies by which they have been misled, that we may be in no danger of seeing our country injured again by laws tending to diminish the sources which supply its sustenance.
