Mr. PptNTRB, 

THIS wUlbethelbfl adJrefsWrh which T Mtmu 
bit the public in the tharacl kt which I have ajjh» 
wd inthej'e papers 1 did not affume it from t> love of 
change nor will I refign it frm a fear of perfeveritig, 
The tatfl exceptionable th'ng I have/en in the coniitiS of 
vty opponents, is an inclinationwhich they have betrayed 
■ todeny utthe freedom of the pre/ whichis dangerous td 
monebut ufur;*rs. and wh : ch ttfurpers alone w'llrefufe 
to mankind, I had dene with the dangerous task of re' 
mmtlrating ft intiftiy upon the conduct and principles 
tf the great; and my onh motive for entering upon it 
was that my countrymen fboutd ntl remain bl lid to their 

difitneuilhed merit. My intention tna tmmtdUatl%tt 

inter into the merits of the cau/e and cc tfine myftlf i* 
reafening alone. My adverj'aries fhewed fuch expertnefi 
in that art of cookery, which' d'ye u tdcrfta:d) ttnfijis i 1 
making a great meal out of a little meat; tint I w.ste- 
Jolved to fit before them n m*ee plentiful d <jb of f rah tAa- 
terials. The f.rft object s of my alteithn w-re to be the 
telebrated minutes of cor vent ion which the Kc >tvckean 
has exulted in, b.cnujtthey wire chiefly the children of 
his own brain. I had prepare:! matter Jiljfuicnt to fill 
ten columns of the public papers ; ana a< terdint to the 
Jbrfl J'pecimens of reply, Ifbauldhavt been amwerel in fiol 
Jf therefore 10 words of a Juppvjttion concerning canni- 
dates for offset produce 20 Hies of laboured reproof; wh t 
an ocean of Writing would have overwhelmed the pub- 
lic f Happily for its all, therefore tf the U'l ronven- 
Htntionmay have put antndto thee* ttovetjy The gen- 
tleman who tpptfed thejeparai tn did great juilice to tin 
tauj'e, anadt/erves our public aikitowedgements, vhatc- 
ver may have beet his private fentin'nts. 0 le of the 
fundamental pr'nc'pies of jociety it that the m-itrity 
Wi'.ift govern. For this rtajoli only. We who hire <.ur

Jvre.t, mi l q::iet thojefeor- aS Will as we ate nine, a d

This (hip, it is faid, was taken flow us during the laft
