Tliew same localittes. Sir, prevent yoor seeing (he troth, and practical benefits of the truth, " that the character of every hamaii being i-s, in all its parts, formed for him ;" that the want of this knowledge oil Ihe part of those who govern the world, alone retards the adoption of a system of government founded on prinriplei of science, which would unerringly prenent the existence of those crimes which hitherto it has been the chief busiuean of the world to detect and punish. Did you clearly understand this invaluable truth, and were you fully aware of the certain con.* set^uences which inu^t ensue from a general belief of It, you would not attempt to raise any part of the revenues of these realms iu such a manner ai must, aud does actually, deteriorate the mural character, and, conseqnent\y, create much poverty, orime, and misery. But it is to the consequences of the great truth, � that man. does hot form his otart cliarHCi�r," that I would direct your clase and pro^ found attention, since it is from u superficial examination of the cmseqntntes of this doctrine, that so many nell-intentioued iiiindM irtve been at first repelled from it ; whereas man)' uf the most acni-ble aiifl intelligent of my early o)i|>oser9 now publicly acknowledge, that lliey peiceive nothing bnt uiiiningied good in the eotisaguences of this once a]>pallriig iluctrine. iVJay I be permitted then to add, that by your acts of commission, or omission, you, as one of the iVlenibera of the Governiueiil, may justly be s;iid lo be one of the tnnaceiit, yt-t certain occasions of the poverty, crime, and suffering^which WWi^Biift.-the piipuldtiun ortliese kiuj;doia� ; fur, on an experience winch no other imlividual haa been permitted to attain, I assert lh.it you possess the most ample means to give a new character to the people, gretitly superior to any jet seen, and to surround them, in a ohort perioel, with plenty and en^ joy men t< 1 Hate these facts (such I know them to bp) not to call down the spirit of persecution"- (your words)-on the Government, for tny teal ilesire has been, and is, to see this improved system carried into practice in nil countries, by th6 e who happen to be in power, that the irraliotml anger and irrilatioii of the world may the more speedily cease. It i� tint, iherefure, to arouse a spirit of animosity that I thus write, but, if pos>ible, lo direct your attention, aud the atienimn of the Guvernnieiit, to the extraordinary power that ProVIDKnce has placed in your baud� to do good, and to allay the present alarming and increasing initaiiuu of society. Let the people be instructed from inr.inry in a knowledge ihut the churacier uf every individual is formed /"or him, mid let all your other pruceejiiitgs be couatsient with tliifi fundainentul principle,, and your difRculties wi)l speedily .(rrminate. Inste.idof the present system, which you must plainly ptrceivp is generating evil on all sides, a new one will rtsu from your labours, which must prevent the ere8 '0 of any of these evils, as it will destroy them in their birth-where you have now antjer, opposition, ttud malevolent passions, you will luve kinduesK, itpity of action, and all the best feelings of hnmun nattfre.
