... their own power, and can dispose of the produce of their labour, without being at the mercy of an avaricious employer; for though a tolerable good workwoman can gain a decent livelihood by selling to the shops, yet the profit of the retailer is so great, that if he rejected a piece of lace, or refused to give a reasonable price for it, a certain sale would be found with the individual consumer: and it is a proof of the independence of this employ, that no one will at present dispose of their work for paper, ...

It is upon this account that goods sold by retail are generally as cheap, and frequently much cheaper, in the ...

That is to say, there must be no middleman between the producer and the retailer, and a definition of the word "retail" is given.
