Preface

The following few pages were written in response to a request made by the Thames Debating Society, and as Protection has long been a favorite theme of mine, I thought the present potitical contest in which we are engaged a favorable opportunity of launching my views (however crude) on the sea of public criticism.

To provoke discussion is my main object, which I now invite, confident that, if conducted in an honest, open manner, with the welfare of the colony as our first consideration, I need not fear the dictum.
