Indulgence

III. First Collateral reason
given by Vansittart
Of the levying the penalty
extreme humiliation
would have been the
consequence.

Negative. No humiliation
from the penalty if paid:
much from the
means by which the
impunity was obtained

3. Another reason for affor giving impunity to the delinquent
has been found by his patron out of his own production Sir Edward Knatchbull.
He is sorry he has been found out. In
the language of the Sir Edwards intercessors rhetoric "it has certainly
"preyed upon Mr Abbots mind, so much as to reduce him
"almost to deaths door."

This topic and ground has been adopted and improved embellished by
Mr Vansittart. Weighin Adopting likewise the language
of Mr James, Casuist Confessor — weighing evil against benefit
in the scales furnished to him by this Casuist Confessor
he pronounces that "more of evil public evil than benefit
would result from the humiliation and extreme
"punishment of a person whose character and conduct
"are stated to have been so honourable to himself and beneficial
"to the community.

Extreme punishment! now what is this extreme
punishment? transportation? pillory? would not any one
be apt to suppose that it were at least the pillory? Whereas Now
the truth is that in its extremity it amounts to no more
than payment of the amount of the difference between
the £500 which together with "the Crown's costs" he is to
pay in the way of composition and the £2620
is the utmost that is charged, and which one may be well
be assumed is considerably manifestly a great deal more than would have been
able found capable of being proved.

such was the language
over laxity of law accusation
on the one hand
and such the over strictness
of the law rules of evidence
on the other
