Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 16, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant Tuefday, June 16, 1730. To the Author of the DAILY COURANT. MR.EVSTACE BVDGELL's Letter in the Daily Poft.Boy of the 11 th Inftanr, occafions this Second Application to you ; fo ftupid a Piece had, for me, met ail the Contempt Silence could have convey'd, but for a few Particular!, which it may not be amifs the Pirblick was appriz'd of. Mr. BVDGELL it feems is full of Refent-ment at my Letter which you was fo kind to infert in your Paper of the 27th oflaft Month; but whether he deferved or not the Treat, menc I there gave him ; or whether what was there advanced was not necejfaryr jufl and feafonable, let the World determinej and that it may be the better able to do fo, that Letter may foon find a more extenfive Publication. So infatuated is this pafftonate Man, that we find him regardlefs of Truth in every Performance; and fo unaccountable is his Con-duel: in general, however loudly he-may exclaim againft it, that the kindeft thing we could think of him, would be that he was disorder'd in his Senfes. In the Letter in the Daily Poft-Boy, however fhorr, Mr. Budgell can not keep.to Matter of Fact; he here charges me with calling him BUFFOON and IMPOSTOR, which I here tell bim is entirely FALSE, and defy Him to make the contrary appear. Mr. BVDGELL has again been trumpeting his own Praife to the Town; and en-deavouring to raife bis Fame upon the Merit of his former Performances; and he may go on in this Way as long as he pleafes; he may give us a third Letter to the Craftfinan, if he ' thinks fit; and every other Day� palm upon us the mean Artifice in ufe among the Book-fellers, for a new Edition of it; but what will all thefe fignify ? Are Men of Senfe to be thus impofed upon? Not a Felon's to be found at the Old-Bailey but with equal Juftice perhaps may plead former Delect. Can fuch Practice be any Advantage to this Person's Reputation ? Or is there a Man of Honour in the Nation, but muft look upon Mr. BVDGELL as a Bafe Infamous De-famer, till he vindicates himfelf from the a-trocious Crimes he ftaTtids publickly cbarg'd with; and puts it paft the Power of being contefted that be bad fufficient Caufe of Complaint, for that unexampled Complaint he had the Ajfurance tomake within Doors, and the Wicksdnefs to improve to an uujuftifiable Outrage without. Was I to take Notice of every Impertinence in this little doughty Epifile, one, would be the Emotion it gives this Gentleman to be nam'd without Scruple, as he terms it, in the Beginning of my Letter: I there call'd him Mr, Euflace Budgell; but that I perceive was not Ceremony fufficient for him ; and the DEA^ JOT feems to have expected gratis from me, what he has always largely paid others for the Purchafe of. But to be more ferious: How contemptible muft this Man appear, while he would be thought of Importance? Can HE have the Front to complain I drdn't fcrufle to Name him, who has made no fcruple to offer the higheft Injuries in his Power to Perfonsof the great-eft Dignity and Worth; and in a Way that aiaft be the moft Abhorrerfce of every ho- neft Mind, ; but to await, without faying more, the Anfwer the Town's in Expectation of from him, allow me only to add, that unlefs Mr. Budgell makes good bis Caufe of Complaint, he will certainly become the Deteftation of the valuable, impartial Part of Mankind j and ought to be treated as a vile Incendiary; unlefs they (hould be fo compaf-fionate as to look upon him to be, what he is now generally thought, A MADMAN. I am, once more, June 15, S 1 ^, 1730. Tour humble Servant, CLEOMENES Remainder of the Letter from the Saxon Camp at Muhlberg, partly inferted Tejlerday.
