1. Suppose a merchant lias effects at AmBterdam to the aiaount
of \$3530, which he can remit by way of Lishon at ÂŁ40 reeÂ« per
dollar, and thence to Boston, at 8s. Id. per milrce (or 1000 reeÂ« :)
Or, hy way of Nantz, at 5| livres per dollar, and thence to Boston
at 6s. Od. per crown ; It is required to arbitrate these exchanges,
that is, to choose that which is most advantageous ?

1 dollar at Amsterdam = 840 rees at (iisbon.
1000 rees at Lisbon ^ 97d. at Boston.

3530 dollars at Amsterdam.

840X97X3530

l OOOxl â€” = ^^ 198 8s. Bj\6. by way of Lisbon.

1 dollar at Amsterdam == 5f livres at Nantz.
6 livres at Nantz = 80 pence at Boston.

3530 dollars at Amsterdam.

5} X 80x3530

jTTg = iJ1059 by way of Nantz.

Here it may be observed that the difference is ÂŁ139 83. Bj^tl.
in favogr of remitting by way of {^isbon rather than by Nanlz,
which depends on the course of exchange, at that time ; but the
course may vary so, that^ in a short time by way of Nantz may
be better; hence appears tbe necessity and advantageof an ex-
tensive correspondence, to acquire a thorough knowledge in tbe
courses of exchange, to make this kind of remittance. ?

2. A merchant in Engjand can draw directly for 1000 piastres ih
Leghorn at 50d. sterling per piastre ; but he chooses to remit the
sum to Cadiz at 19 piastres for 7000 maravedies ; thence; to Am-
gterdam at 189d. Flemish for^^SO maravedies ; and thence to Liv-
erpool at 9d. Flemish for 5d. sterling : what is gained by this cir-
cular remittance, and i^hat is the value of a piastre to him ?

Ans. Gam ÂŁS8 Hs. sterling nearly.
Value of a piastre 56(i. 3*55qr. sterling.

3. A merchant in New York orders JC500 sterling, doe him at
London at 54d. sterling per dollar, to be sent by the following cir-
cuit ; to Hamburgh a^ 15 marks banco per pound sterling ; thence
to Copenhagen at 100 marks banco for S3 rix dollars ; thence to
Bourdeaux at one rix dollar for 6 francs ; thence to Lisbon at 125
francs for 18 milrees ; and thence to New York at \$\\ per milree :
did he gain or lose by this circular remittance, and what was the
arbitrated value of a dollar by this^ remittance ?

Ans. He gained.
Value of a dollar was 69d. sterling nearly.

On account of their great practical importance, these two rales
