Unprejudiced that there were many receipts produced but tells us not By whom thefe receipts were nor the objec tions to which thefe receipts were for well known to that honeft Gentleman for he well that if he had difdofed the whole nature of thefe which were and by whom their futility would have immediately ap Oh fays during the hurry occafioned by marching and counter receipts could not be were the Commiffioners on any pre to allow of claims which did not appear pro perly authorized We all that when a debt cannot be no Judge can decree pay And here I muft that though re ceipts could not be

than in is every other pretence which is urged on that fide of the The accounts which were not approved of could not be in order to prevent thefe claims from being becaufe we all know that no man of

in this that the claimants might in the treatment thefe ac counts met the indignation of the Commil fioners at demands fo ill and probably profecuted before them in the fame unfair manner in which tht patrons of thefe claims have proceeded in their addrefs to the public from your The objections made to the appointment of thefe were formerly founded on national neafons j now the objections are One

of the various articles of which they were rejecting thofe that were not and reporting the juftice of thofe that were vouched As ta the to the other two Commif that they were too deeply cer tain matters which they might expeft to throw a veil over by this it hows the of the writers and his ftrong inclination to lay a par ticular and direct accufation againit thefe two gen if he dared to be fo

have not acted with that rectitude winch juftioe and the nature of their office required from dating of the Germans it that our Commiffioners would not give a favourable report in behalf of any de

there is little raafon to put any confidence in the vague boafts of peribns whole duplicity is fovtry apparent and I think I may fafely tint men who fo often change their ground and manner cf at when
