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
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

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
