1907 Excerpt: ...16,823; British Africa, 70,224; Newfoundland and
Labrador, 26,967 British Guiana, 33,309; Bermuda, 47,788, and to
British Honduras, 41,910, making a total of 2,308,500 pairs sent to
British territory out of an aggregate exportation of 5,672.249

1906 are in some cases somewhat less than those of 1900. Of
