prefent a few days paft in a where fome country gentlemen were that tlie landtax was this year to be continued at four millings in the pound and wherefome London ers likewife were making as grie vous complaints that it was not laid in a more equal manner over the whole kingdom I could not but obferve to that I thought the complaints of both were very and the effect ef that clamourous diilatisfied which excites men to be more loud than rather of fueh a tractable as feeks to underltand before it prefumes to and pronounce lenience of damna tion on all thofe who difTent from fuch In I affirmed againft the that the as it was laid at appeared to me to be one of the nioft equitable taxes in the king dom and equitable for that very becaufe it was not laid equally on all parts of the Againft the country gentlemen I that they did not underltand their own if they com plained that the landtax was ftill continued at four millings for inftead of making that a fubjeft of thy ought rather to wifli that the land tax was railed ftill in many other taxes abolilhed which are much more burthen fora e to the landed As both parties were prepoflelTed with their own long imbibed I could not hope to convince either of them and it to little to argue againft fuch I am fare that I am and mufl be right or againft fuch excellent vouchers and as that Tultice Importance of Hawthorn Dale affirms the one and the no lefs egregious pictureof a CommonCouncil Man of affirms the as thofe gentlemen undoubtedly read your univerfally efteemed I beg thro to prove to their cooler reflections the few following That the felrifh fpirit of the never contented with the vaft profits which they at the expence of the country well induce them to that the landtax was laid equally over the whole becaufe they themfelves pay fo much greater a propoponion of it than either the or even adj counties but in reality this unequal distribution not only as ancient as any of the pre fcriptive cuftoms of the city of but is alfo nothing but what is equ fetond pointfollows as a neceffary That the country gentlemen do not underftand their own if they be urgent to reduce die landtax lower than four fallings in the pound for if the value of that rouR be raifed it is for the intereft cf all the other counties that fuch fiiould be raifed by this method in which the andMid a tprofortiqn than any In order to make out thefe pbiiitsmore it rriuft be that many perfons that the present inequality of the landtax was firft intro duced under King and introduced through the great 2eal of the city of and the eleven counties adjacent to Hertford and Cam bridgefliire from their boafted love of Wil liam and gave as they fay an accosnt of their eitaes according to the full value while the more diftant as they clandeiiinely fuppreffed the value of their But this is a tho popular iniltake for the pre fent inequality in the aflcflinent of the landtax be tween the counties adjacent to and the af feffment on the northern and is as ancient as any taxes on land cjn be traced back and therefore the city of London has the very fame prefcriptive right to be taxed more than other di as to any others of its boafted prefcriptive pri vileges and as the city of London poflefTes the fole prefcriptive privilege of petitioning the King as well as parliament againft any it certainly is but that it fhould pay for this advantage over the reft of his Majeftys equally loyal and liege That that this ob jecled to by the Londoners and adjacent was nor introduced under King but fub fiited is manifeft from an afleOinent for land tax in the ijth and i8ih of Charles in the rating of which that very fame inequality is obferved be tween the counties adjacent to and the ri ftant which is now complaised of and pre tended to have been introduced under King Wil through the zeal of counties in the cauie of the bulwark of The abovementioned af feflment was bifore the civil war but when the ci vil v r was and the commonwealth eftablifh ed fo firmly as to be for the firlt to col leiSt a genera yet even thofe extravagant friends to equality were fo far from complaining of the rate made under Charles that they collected their own aficftments according to the very fame preferving that fame unequal tax upon London and the adjacent which had iub fifted before and rkis too they notwitftanding thefe counties had been chieily their and the favourite London in the great fup port of their levelling principles and the lurking and often open enemy to royal and noble blood whereas the difhint counties north and weft had been more firmly attached to the royal and were the lait that were brought under fubjeotion to the London therefore might bet ter it was its hearty zeal for republican rather than for conftitutional fubjectjd it to this heavy After the re ftoravion the fame unequal tax was which had palled through the purifying handi of the re and was only renewed under King il liam on the fame footing as The truth of thefe things may be by comparing the ft ate of the afTefiment in the ith and 18th of King Charis for with another monthly aiRJfinent in the of William and in order to raife Of the firft the eleven adjacent counties excluding Weft minfter and paid and the di ftant counties Lutofthe latter affefiinent under the eleven counties paid only while the diftant counties raid which is more than their propor tion j for according to their proportion in Charless they ought to hsve paid but To and the tax un der William was ftill more favourable for of the afleflinent under Charles they paid which is almoit one feveiib of the whole under William they paid only 175 which is only al molt one ninth of the whole So that it is plain they have been favoured fmce the ih ftead of bting burdened the more on account of their pretended Now as the commonweahh did not complain of the proportions in Charless af it is that they were convinced fuch ailefiments were made according to the propor tions which had fubfiited long before his The The mcit ancient landtax was by fif teenths and but in what proportion thefe were is very till the of when a general furvey of all eitates was and the being on had power to examine all perfonsconcerning the true value of their The fame was renewed tlie of and the 4th and 5th of Philip and the agth of Eliza and the i8th Therefore it is pro bable that Charless afuifment only followed the ex ample of thofe of his that the unequal proportions now complained of are as anfient as any prefcriptive and cuftomary right Whe ther then the continuance of the fame be not as equi table as any other common right of fliall be the fubject of another zealous promoter of that noble and fcheirre for theadininiftration of fea orreward to die This he onen de
