who might be living at the end of March Thus it became the greateft object of the corpo and a great one it how to breed up and place ou in the moft proper manner the number of children on their being then about 5000 fome few were aterwards received on a new mode by the petition of but thefe have not amounted to two It feems neceffary in this historical detail to inform that upon the principle I apj plied my thoughts to the moft expeditious mode of exonerating the public and at the fame time pro vide in the moft fafe and piudent manner for the welfare of the 1 confulered the power of money to do good aswdl as I ruminated on the cuitoms of this nation in rigard to as one hardly fees any thing good effectually executed with I compared the cuitoms of the moft refpectable public charitable i ftituiions I correfpondeJ with the moft intelligent people of fortune and experience in the country charged with the care of the foundlings at nurfe and upon the force of this prefumprive know I wrcte a fropofal for giving apprentice fees with the foundlings growing fome few of them already tit f r mafters and I gave the feveral rea fons which occurred ti me why the foundlings might be prenticed out earlier and better ivib apprentice fees than without I fujjpofed thatgreat caution and money would do more than great caution That in the hands of the labouring part of prudently paid was a greater fum tliiii in the hands of the Governors of the Foundling That ought to be trained and familiarized to the objects by which they are to get their in employments of That the public might probably have fetjmain tenanceofeach child for near two years by thismeans and if it there would be of 60or Whether I miftcok in overrating the advantage in a pecuniary I know not but I had fuch good evidence for my as to the principle I that I have not fmcc found any slter It is common when an opinion is not agreeable to a or that evils are apprehended to flow from to rsprefent it as meaning much more or much lefs lhii was and conftquently to thinkond lleakof it if m t In the mean time there is generally fome rcafbn in the breaft not Certain it that good and evil are fo that the bell are fubject to great Whatever good reafons may be and nodoubt there rrny be tome good it is certain the Gover nors have not applied for money to to enable them to purfue this on the con have oppofed Whether they continue in the fnme or whether the of have changed their time will The chief reafons afligneJ againft this Propofal were follow Tlutif money were people wonld crowd in for the and the poor children have the worfe chance of being taken care as it would be impof fible to acquire a competentknowledge of the cha racters of perfons That a partiality might be fliewnin the difpofal of thefe children with There feemed to be fome weight in thefe objec and it is certain many parifh children are placed out in thefe great cities to very worthleis But to this I I hat the proving too That only 3 or are generally given with pa whereas I propofed as far as That the parifh children are often times crowded merely to exonerate the parifh whereas the greater caution was intended with the as the child with money was more valuable than the fame child That fuch people as might be fuppofed proper to take fuch children ought to be if their humanity or connections with a child mould induce them to take it without I did not defire any child mould be placed out in thefe great cities where it is confeffedly diffi cult to know the true ftate of fome that might offer to take and where there is fo much wicked That I to place them chiefly in the coun where peoples characters and abilities are in there are not a tenth part of the foundlings here in That I alfo thought fo much regard due to thefe children who have been deprived of and faeir fafety and happinefs depending fe much on good mafters and 1 would decline putting out ten children to proper mafters or ra ther than part with one with fiifpicion of being ill or rendered a The 8th of accounts of the Foundling ufually called for every were ordered to be laiSbefore ibe The next day an account was required of the num ber of

Hofpital as to the putting out the Ori the 26th a report was made to the Houfeiwhich was agreed On the ad of April a Bill was ordered to be brought in upon thefe The firft article the lodgirtgatKl ing of Foundling children within has a tendency to make filch children lefs fit tor laborious and ufeful That all the lands and buildings rented or and Uie Itodc and furniture provided at all or any of the Fctaufag except that at ctigki to be or difpofcd to be the beft as foon the children in the faid hofpitals can be placed out and that money arifmg therefrom be applied in iuch manner as parliament fhiill Thefe tworefolntions being in fome meafure con I mention them You may eafily conceive fuch determinatj Jis cieated a gjeac alarm in the minds of thofe who weie warm advocates fc r hofpital This alarm was encmtfed by Refolution the That fuch of the faid children as are of the of fevcnyears and upwards to he brthwith placed as apprentices to or to the or oher fervice and that the reft of them ought to be placed out iii like as foon as they hall attain that or ij proftr maf ters can be provided for The jd that the Governors and Guardians of the faid feveral and alo the faid inspectors in

the Governors not pleading the wnnt which they pollefs by The ex prelfive of the fenfe of the are rather recom mendations than abfolute injunctions and I fee not how any act of parliament of a coercive nature could be made upon them and an without ceeriion feems to be a contradiction in The only part definitive is for the fale or mortgage of certain buildings erected for the purpofe of lodging the faid 4th and Refolutions very clear nnd That there allowed to every malter or miitrefs who mail take any fuch apprentice upon the terms hereafter a fum of money at the difcreticui of fuch

the which was read and ordered to be read but tliis laft order was not complied Sosie reafons why it was not fsem to be obvious the Rcgmcy Bill was depending the iefiions was doling and a peti tion aganilt the Hofpital Bill was ready to be pre One reafjn for petitioning that it was not poflible to put out tt children fo early Bat it mult be this is requirid as pro per maflers can be Another reafon that the two Hofpitals of Ackworth and to be fold or mort as it they were the property of the did belong to the and conlequetitiv it would be a violation of their property to oider them to iifpofed that they the Governors could difpofe of the children better without Yrtiritice fees than with Here it muft be that the intention wns to appropriate the produce of the hofpitals fodifpofed cf
