paying oft the debt of the nation but you may jult as apply all the landed property in the kingdom to that The million and a half a year we are flaking is as much private property as any thing can be and I Wrll never believe that that patriotic who has been fo juftly diitin guifiied for his noble and diunterefted way of think will ever be in promoting an or ever attempt to aggrandize the public at
