9 Jany. 1802

How many times over does your Lordship
expect me to prove the existence of the Sun
at noon day? Though it be but an anticlimax
to come with a parallel presumption after a
proof, I will e'er give it for what it is –
for it is my business to pay my court to
your Lordship, and I am not in a humour
to do it otherwise than by by any thing but facts.

In the City of London there was and is
a Mr Fell, whom the manner of the Land-tax
Sale – a measure in itself so good
that all the labour of Mr Pitt and his Mr
Rose and Mr Long those
collaborators and sublaborators have not been
with to spoil it – the measure of the
Sale of the Land Tax found a Collector or Preserver
I don't know which of the whole of
the Land tax for that great City – and what
here left Collector of Preserver of
some such matter as one half of it. To the
10 per Cent upon mean which as all pay
this measure had superadded in the case of this
gentleman a special income particular tax to the amount
of say 50 per Cent, total 60 per Cent,
Mr Fell has and had then an encreasing
family, though consisting as yet of no more than
a wife and eight or nine children enter as
yet I believe into the composition of it.
