6. The assurance of not b getting their labour at the
Metasylum at any thing under the current price. This
is the result P of the pains I have been at
is the natural and intended result of the provision
for giving their Characters from year to year worded
for the purpose, to those such as shall th be found deserving
of it. Though a discretion is absolutely necessary
in consequence of which the obligation can not
be compelling made binding in point of law, it will not be the
less binding in effect to me or as well upon me as upon any successor of mine
who may then look upon his regard honour as a thing an object worth
preserving. in As in consequence of these characters public
the Metasylum will be a sort of a Register-Office where
Masters in abundance will be coming in abundance to
bid against me for good hands, so that it is only the
refuse that will stay with me,
and as most of the
works will be new inventions of my Brother's, it is not
ordinary wages nor perhaps any wages that will keep
a skilful workman with me. The refusal of leavings
of the public will therefore be all that I can depend upon.
will come to my share This disadvantage I thought
it necessary to admitt to
have taken upon me with
my eyes open, to save the plan from the reproach of
keeping men in a state of perpetual servitude.

These burthens taken together form no trifling concern;
and what be makes it the more formidable, is the extreme uncertainty
of the amount. But having, as conceiving myself
to have been liberally dealt with, it would have been unjust to
the public, and if I may be allowed to say so, repugnant to my nature,
to have omitted any thing which seemed necessary to the giving
the plan that such a degree of perfection as lies within the reach of my faculties and my views.
