D my royal conlideration, the many and very important advantages which would necessarily result to the commerce of the iubjects of these kingdoms and their dominions, by the establishinent of a free port; and well aware i hat the port of Lisbon, from its Gtuation, security, and fa. cility of navigation with the ocean, is preferable to those of other na. tions, which have adopted limilar establishments; conforming myself to the opinion of my royal board of Commerce, Agriculture, Manufactures, and Navigation, of those kingdoms and their dominions, and of others of my council, very learned and zealous for the good of my royal service, and of the public utility: It is my will, and I am plealed to create and establish at Junqueira, joining to the city of Lisbon, a free port, to take entire and duc effect from the first day of January, in the year next ensuing, of 1797, having deitined for its exercise and the de. polit, the houses and warehouses of Fort St. John, with the ground ad. joining, whereon to build the further necessary accommodations, there to receive and deposit all goods and merchandize, of whatever quality or kind they may be, as well from foreign countries (except, for the prefent, sugar and tobacco) as from national ports lituated beyond the Cape of Good Hope, for the purpose, at the option of the proprietors of faid goods, of diípoting of them for the internal consumpion of the kingdom, provided they are entitled to lawful entry, and on paying the cu ionary duties, at the respective custom houles; or to be exported to foreign por s, or national ones beyond the said Cape of Good Hope, on paying only towards the benefit of my royal revenue, for protection and depolit, the duty of one per cent, on the amount of their value, calcu. lited on the invoice to be produced by the captains of the verels, or th: ir consignees, by them nigned and certified on oaih; the liberty of Franquia Itill however to remain as heretofore, for all vessels that ihall require it, according to the rules as established by the custom house of this city; suppressing all other duties, and revoking all and whatever difpofitions that may oppose, or infringe on the liberty and freedom which are to conftitute the advanta?es of the establishment.
Further to animate and promoie in this capital a concurrence and abundance of articles of the firit necetlity; I am plezied to declare, that all qualities of grain, meat, and food, which are free from paying duties inward, shall not only enjoy the free liberty of exp ration, but Thall be also free from payment of the aforelaid contribution imposed on other goods, and continue to be received and dispatched through the lame departments as heretofore.
In cale it Mould happen that the crown of Por:ugal should enter into war, (which God forbid) with any power whole subjects inight be interested in goods in the tree port, in which condition it is to be under. stood the aforesaid grain, mea , and food, are included, no arrelt, embargo, fequeftration, or reprisals Thall on that account be made there. on, but on the contrary, they shall remain in the utmost freedom and Security, as it each individual had them placed in his own houle, to dispose of them as he may judge most suited to his interest.
The adininiftration of the aforesaid free port shall b: constituted under the superintendance of a General Comptroller, with the necessary officers under hini, that I may be plealed to appoint; and it is my will to erder, that he thall be independant of all and every jurisdiction, and on
