Tho* the Court endeatoun to hide from thePublick its Difcontent about the Pfogrefs of the Spaniards, yet it is not very difficult to difcover its Uneafi-nefi upon that Account.

Put inftead of fuch a fair Cpnfeflion, in his Letter of the 27th, after expreiling his Dlflike of the feeming Gooct-Nature and Modefty (as he is pleafed to ttile them) of the Writer of the Obfervations, he takes very unneceffary. Pains to convince his Readers, that he makes no Pretence to either.; for tho* he cannot deny Mr. Knight's being univerfally efteem'd an honeft Man till 1720 ; yet, without 'making any Allowance for the general Madnefs and Avarice of that Tear, and the peculiar Temptations which Mr. Knight was exposM to, he has the Cruelty to infinuate, that he was always  a bad Man in his Hearty and only wanted an Opportunity to difcover it. It is hoped the Qiarafters of Men'will not be fix'd by that Year ; if they fiiould, many who before, and ever fmce, have defervedly had a good one, muft^e contented to part with it. The Letter-Writer would think it hard, and it would be fo, if for having publifh'd oneTalfhood on the 20th of January laft, and perhaps in the Heat of Pafiion, it'&ould be inferred, that he was always an Enemy to Truth, notwith-ihnding his flaming Zeal for Juflice, which caniiot be feparated from Truth, and fhould be temper1 d with fome Mercy.
