that I hare mere than once thought that I have proA«-

Bay, taught me that you are a more proper objed for ridicule.
In the firft Sentence of your answer, you have apologised for
corurtruding what has been uejuMy called a Sort rets, on the
Boston Neck. The fame fafhoui fpint wki ch leads the Rof
toniaiw to call fobmiffion to government Slavery—Kingo, ty

whole, has led them to traduce, by a Military name, a work
which wM executed only to amufo your officers, and to exer

You fay that Britain never formed the black design of
wantonly ddlrtying at anftaviog any people oo earth. It will
be foffiriant to contradifi thia aflcttion, by only hinting at the
depredations which have lately been committed upon human
nature ia the East-Indies under the fanflion of the Buu/b
name. Her attempt to enslave the colonies, hardly deserves
the name “ of a design." •< ha» been executed with a
folly equal to ita iniquity. It would be the bbekeff mgta
titude to foppok that our mother country ever intended to

There waa a time, whew Britein deferred the name of a

her lataAameful oompofreiea with the cobrtof Spain. The

I have hitherto,though fttongly tempted, abstained from

Let ui now ft.te tbe case of an Englishman living under
such a constitution as the proceeding, and by hie geacraldt

After what we have foen attempted U the case as Mr.,

The persons who compose the adminiftrstion of the dsy
command the Sheriff to aominate aad return such Jurats at

The Sheriff refufes; but after a few change, a Sheriff is
found who engages to be obfequiou. to their will.
An honest Judge, who, by some mistake, has been admit
ted into office, givetaproper caution to the Jury, and the
Culprit ia acquitted. . . ,
A more obfequiout Judge it fubfriruted in his P***’ ‘he
next attempt fueceeds. A Jury, packed by a Sheriff, remov
able at pleai'ure, and dire&ed by a Judge under the fun ear
cumftances, finds any given Culprit guilty of any given aume.
If this be a just representation of the case, and I defy any
