But as I cannot see.it-in that light, and think every one who has been a little accustomed to exercise his thoughts on things of this nature, must be properly qualified to. judge of its me-rits, I venture what follows in farther support of what 1 have advanced in my other letters.--I own-1 cannot discover any arguments in favour of my opinion more direli or conclusive than those I have already given, but as placing the affair in a different point of view, may perhaps be thought by some to add strength to them, I shall without farther preface subjoin what more occurs to me as illustrative ef the subject.
