ADECEN r rerpeRforthepatienceof thepublic, 
•rill iadilte metobeasconci.e ispoffiblemmy 
"©Ircrvat'.ons on a few of the many things advaficed 
b my enemies. Nor tho.ild t chin . rhefc .ietetfary, 
had tnotcal edtipon (hem to bring forth their char- 
ge- I'hc p dfurion Oi ab.ile within whi^h thefe 
fe'W a.e involved as it cannot affect me, fo is it, 
beneach my notice. 

Their writer iiat.cs, as a Criminal charge, thatl 
bad not long acted as a deputy m the Survey6,s 
Office, befoie I diftinguluied myfeif by demand, 
ing the memorable double fee; And did I in that 
capacity a'ter being counselled demand the advan- 
ced fee according to law ? It was a crying fin in 
me no doubt. And what mull prove the charge 
of A-varice beyond a poflibiliy of contradiction, is, 
that I became a common fufferer, was obliged to 
pay the advanced fee, and could not poffibly de- 
rive any benfit from it, my Salary being fixed, 
find by no means depending upon the fees in Of- 
fice. As to my conduct to the people both then, 
and ever lince, they are the heft judges, I wall 
them to review it, and to think, fpe&k, and act 
for themfelves. 

The next capital charge it appears is, that I did 
Tiotanfweraqueftion at a particular time, and that 
1 aftd wards give an explication by private leiter. 

This le ter has been publifhed at my re^ue!*-, 
to which I refer he reader, it mieht have been 
obferved, that independanr of every other cucum- 
fiance, 1 had a right to have purchafed the lin 
try in queftion, it 1 had chol'en to do fo Th N 
writers attempts to fix the falfhood, it muft be 
convened are rathei unfoitunate when his very 
groundwork is an abfolute faifhood. i have no 
where faid as he afferts, that the land inqtiefhon 
was the property of Wilkinfonand Turpin. The 
property 1 prefume is Calmes's. In the letter 
aludcd to after appealing to Mai. Crittenden's 
knowledge, who was undoubtedly better acquaint- 
ed with all the circumftames refered to than my 
felf; 1 obferved that, they we e an pojfeffion of 
the land ; 1 immagine they will not deny living on 
it. Coturafted with the:e fa£t> how truly amiable 
muft the ch.i acter of this more than candid ,cha- 
titajle and humane writer appear. 

The puo.ic inuft know too that I wrote a let- 
ter u the Slate^ Attorney, and th?.t 1 olfeied a- 
bu e to Mr. Tuipin. Hon fome people counter- 
aft their own defigns, by making the man they 
Willi "o ruin, of fuch immence Confequence even 
his private letters are dragged before the public. 
Mr. Attorney I fuppofe is the fuperior whom I 
have treated with haughty ain, and Mr. Turpin 
the poor and unfortunate, whom I h3ve i ca ed 
with violence. Have they complained toy u Mr 
writer as the Knight Errant of al I diftrcieJ '.voi- 
thies ? They lhouid undo.ibredly have done it to 
me as the proper perfon to redre's their glievan 
ces. ' If 1 co.ild te.iliy think the public inter cileJ 
In thefe things, I would demand a publicstion of 
that and another letter to the States Attorney. I 
faij in efFet, that Mi. Turpin was a pmpaga'er 
of [caudal ; if he w.fhcs me to fupport it, ai his 
h rticuUr equeft I will do fo. In this maw er the 
JrVnic mjy reft ajjured the prejent conteft origina- 
ted ; and .s if tins' Mr. writer which sou have 
kept, iuch a fuis andadoabout? Ridiculous.' 

My fnends ob.'c ve ti-.e c is much pains taken 
io mar e ihe pcop.e r>e( eve, that f have treated 
Mr. Harris ungeneroi fly. I would a Ik how ho 
lhouid be treated? As the agg-rcnor, he took 
care to time his publications in fueh manner, as 
to prevent my replying btforc court, at which 
time he was bound to Ins good behaviour. He 
ftill lends his name to vent cveiy fpecics of atuife; 
and complains that his hands are-tied What docs 
he want! To fhew the ahfurdity ot this aitil cc, 
it is only neclTary to obferve, that he claims the 
merit of thefe pieces, if he is the > eal Author, 
he is certainly under great oblisations to- me; for 
convert n; him in the couife of a week from a 
naieri fine Ge.tleman to a wifter of Tales, and 
by the next qualifying him to write Criticifms, 
ani H iJ.y. Le' anv one compare "Thofewho 
kno v me, know that I am no writer" with his 
late productions, ;md they will be trade fenfible 
of this; or will conclude that he is not the Au- 
thor, as he pretends. And now Mr. real Author 
a few words with you ; a feci promising great things, 
and torturing your brain over lit le ones; what 
hive >'ou produced but contradictions, absurdities, 
bomuaft and falfhood P Had you have mixed 
lefs of the foul corruprion of your heart with the 
[ftventtoh of your head; you might have entitied 
you- felf to forne credit as a writer of Romance. 
If you are that reil friend to mankind that you 
woald be thought ; you will fign your owrfname' 
to vour next piece, that we may know, and loot 
. vp to you. as the true pattern of all perfection, 
an te.'»ht e*™»?le.foT imitation, But if as If rfpeft 

fs but tittle hope of moving you on this principle. 
And now to conclude if you dare renounce the 
Charade, of Lurking Airaitin, own your pieces, 
and fubmir your conduct t£> a.f?ir difcuflion wc 
fhall fee your name to your next piece. I will 
then lumim you with a few facts to defcant upon. 
If you will not do this, you may write as long 
as you can find a man of your patty fo bale, as 
to lend his name ; and it is probable that filerxe 
will be the part of H, MARSHALL.
