Gadsden concludes his letter by describing writings and recent publications, and favorable reports of S.C.'s increasing exports to trading partners in continental Europe and the reaction of Great Britain: Gadsden describes rice exports as part of the "growing Hamburgh Trade" maintained by a German merchant named Schutt in Charleston, "who settled amongst us as a Citizen soon after the Evacuation, [and] has for these three years past shipt... at least 20,000 Barrels of Rice each year... & has been the principle means of keeping up the Price of Rice... Of this Trade Gr[eat] B[ritai]n appears extremely jealous... His Vessels have been particularly aim'd at... This Hamburgh Trade...."
