A? Taolb36 was a pablio man, Kincaid wae
perfectly jastifiable in writiDg the letter
which made him his deadiy enemy. It is
only the fear of publicity that deters many a

passions. Since writing that letter there
was not a day until heshotTanibeson which
Kincaid was not liable to affront, Insult,
asiau't pncl threatened death, from the man
who had avowed himself his enemy. In?
deed, such wa" his danger, and so desirous
waa be tc> avoid if, that it interfered with
his ra^acs of making his living, as it re

iqaal and liberty-loving America people
