PREFACE. 



It is with considerable pleasure, that I send forward this 
first Rubber Handbook with details of companies and private- 
estates in the East-Coast of Sumatra (Netherlands-India). 

I have inserted a table of fluctuations in the price 
of rubber for the last 5 years, also tables of the relation 
of the British measures and monetary to the Chief measures 
and monetary of the Netherlands-India. 

Owing to the difficulty of obtaining exact particulars 
regarding some of these concerns, the details in the following 
pages are not guaranteed but every care has been taken 
to render them as accurate as possible. 

Should the particulars of any company have been inad- 
vertently omitted, the undersigned trust that the same will 
be brought to his notice, so that they may be included in 
any future issue. I cannot omit to acknowledge the valuable 
assistance which Officials and Planters and exclusively 
O. R. L. J. Magnee Esqre, General Director of the Banking 
and Ti-ading Corporation Naudin ten Cate & Co. Ltd. 
Medan and Representative of the Medan — Branche of Messrs 
LiNTNER & Co. Ltd., have given me, in connection with 
this edition. 



J. BOS. 

MEDAN, 



DELI, 



January 1911. 



Tabulated below is a method to see at a glance how 
many trees are planted per acre and per bouw when only 
the acreage and distance apart of planting is given. Thus 
if 18X20 is stated, take a cross reference with the combi- 
nation of 18 and 20, by which it will be found that the 
number of trees planted is 121.
