20 Jany 1812
Evidence

A symptom that be alike manifest in the case of the
one and the other gentleman, is a considerable perturbation agitation
of mind: which symptom has will in both instances, but more
particularly in the case of the Reverend Divine
be seen to have been productive
of its natural and but too customary effects, viz. misrepresentation
and in no inconsiderable degree. That
this misrepresentation mis-statement had not for its accompaniment in
either instance any the least consciousness of its own
existence, that consequently it stands altogether free from moral
blame is rendered evident me to me by proofs still less equivocal
than that which is afforded by the excellent and exemplary moral
character which without any exception I have constantly
heard ascribed to both gentlemen, and that pure public spirit
which the marks of which are so conspicuous in every
thing which in this account I find said by them is done.
I mean the very nature of the facts thus misrepresented.
The more clear it is When in a statement of any
kind anything of incorrectness is observable, the more clear manifest
it is that to a calm observer an undisturbed mind observer that
it can not but be that the error come in case of
examination escape from detection is impossible, the
more manifest it is that that sort of unhappy
consciousness which among lawyers is known characterized by the name
of mala fides can not have had place been the cause, but that the
and consequently of what there is to be of matter for regret the cause source
is to be looked for not in the moral but in the intellectual
quarter of the mind.
