Case
Abbot information
by Excise Board in
the Exchequer for employing
revenue-defrauding
and health-injuring
ingredients.

The case is shortly briefly this. in this wise. Against John Abbot of the City of
Canterbury Esqre Brewer and Justice of the Peace for the County
in which that City stands, at the instance of the Commissioners
of Excise, a prosecution called an information
is was pending in the Court of Exchequer "for the
using" (say the Commissioners) adulterating ingredients in his beer, whereby (continue
they) not merely the revenue is defrauded, but the health
of his Majestys subjects highly endangered.

To stop prosecution
Memorial by Defendant
to Treasury, backed
by letters from six co-
intercessors — at the
head Dean Andrews
Rector of St James's

For the purpose of obtaining the stoppage of the course
of justice in his favour, the defendant Mr Abbot, applies
by Memorial to the Lords of the Treasury, backing his
application with letters in his favour private and some of them very familiar letters in his favour to
Mr Lushington, Secretary
to the Treasury

from six Gentlemen
two Reverend and four not Reverend, of whom by two Reverend as
the last of whom most exalted foremost the Very Reverend the Dean of Canterbury
who moreover is Rector of St Jamess and as such dates
his Paper from the Rectory House in Piccadilly, stands at
the head. to which for form sake are added To these official letters are added two Affidavits
are A one from his Ca himself, the other from a servant of his a Coachman.

By Andrews's letter
not stated a belief
that defendant was not
guilty: intercessor
knows nothing about
the matter: yet is
persuaded Defendt
is not to blame

That Of the guilt of the Defendant in whose behalf he applies to save
him from trial was not guilty in respect of the offence above described
can his Very Reverend advocate does not venture to speak
of himself as entertaining so much as a doubt: Under
these circumstances the best most prudent course a man can take is
to avoid if possible understanding any thing about the business in which
he then interferes, and to declare [at any rate to make declaration to this effect] that in this endeavour
he has seconded. Such accordingly is the declaration
made by Dean Andrews this very Reverend Mediator and Advocate+
