see e.g., LLMC Title No. 57025h. By the time of the Glorious Revolution in 1680, the Royal African Company had effectively lost its monopoly on West
African trade due to the activities of uncooperative independents. In 1698 Parliament affirmed that fact in an act that officially opened up the West
African trade to all merchants. In exchange, however, all independents were required to pay a 10% levy to the Company on all goods exported from Africa
to help maintain the infrastructure of forts, etc., which made the trade possible. This contribution requirement was a constant source of friction
between the Company and the independent merchants; sometimes referred to as the Separate Traders to Africa. The print text of this title was scanned from
Lincoln’s Inn Library pamphlet volume Misc. 103.)
