Old Stores – Selling

Contemplating the magnitude of the loss which
(if my information be correct to judge from such information as hath presented itself
to me) is because has attached itself, and
inseparably as it should seem in a manner which appears inseparable, to the existing
mode, it has occurred to me that another
mode equally simple but as opposite as can be
might perhaps be worth the trying. A general intimation
of it may be comprised in a very few
words – it consists in the selling the articles
in question not by another but by hand: and
in lots – not large as at present suited to the dealer
only, but in small lots, with the price marked on
each, suited to the consumer. In this way

1. The dealer lots corresponding to the dishonest part
of the dealers profit might be saved

2. The cover which at present afforded to therefrom
would might be effectually removed.

3. And a check given to the too prevalent practice
abovementioned of premature and ill-grounded
degradation.

In the existing mode the competition is apparent
only: and not real: in the preferred mode there
would be a real competition without the appearance
of it.

In the existing mode, the public officer has no
personal interest acting upon him in the same direction
with his duty, which in the opposite direction
he has is acted upon by an undeniable interest, and that as experience
has shown but too strong an one.
