VOL. I.

"If I might give a shot hint to an impartial writer, it would be to tell him his fate.

But if he regards truth, let him expect martyrdom

The effeminacy, incapacity, and despotism, under which the people are governed, is intended to be increased by the appointment of a Minister of Police, with a system of espionage, and your houses invaded by spies. The liberty and property of no man, widow, or orphan, is secure from the merciless and dishonest adjudication and persecution of the unholy and corrupt Ecclesiastical and Chancery
