exifls, and without which even the two charatters in which we are now convex-ling, the reprefented and the reprefcntative, are mere illufory fictions.

I defire likewife to allure you, that I will omit no opportunity of fulfilling that particular duty, which the prefent occalion has called upon you to remind me of; I mean the {catching out the caufea of public diflatisfaétion, and the objefls ofa juft public refentment; trulling to your candour, if the fuccefs does not anfwer to the warm cxpeéitations of many honelt men, and the ardent wifhes of all. You have more than once over-rated my abilities to ferve you ; I with I had not reafon to fear, that in this in- llance you experience a llril-zing ex- ample of it.

It is my firli duty to join in your wifli, that due order and lub- ri-iiflion, as well as a refolute adhe- rence to the rights of freemen, may prevail. It is the molt per- fect felf-interefi, and the higheli ambition to join with you in the other, that I may be in any degree the fortunate inlirument in preferv- ing thofe rights.

Gentlemen, Your much obliged, and faithful humble fervant, Grotto: SAviLLE.”

To {be Freeholder: afimdled at Tori,
