sqlicely have PXpertUhat in aslavehold

te such an exibition, I would that you,

cqijld have witnessed, as I did, this scene;
socalculated to gratify the fanatics, and to

he would not have considered worthy of no

inruire into the matter ourselves, and to re
lie the mind of Mr. Nicholas and tranquil
izlhe nerves of the editor of the Enqui

opportunity for playing oil a piece of wag

bribed them to extend their march into. the
