And now, my Lord, without any on my part
Your Lordship has seen as it were by a side glance
and at an earlier period than I had proposed, the
fourth & last of the four grounds of seling relinquishment,
of the three first of which my first Letter

gentleman could understand ? — You see, Sir Charles,
this thing can't go on, Lord such a one is against
