GENTLEMEN, THE Addrefs of Philopatris to the Merchants, iirfl- publifhed in the General Advertifer of Saturday the 1 ith Inftant, and afterwards continued in feveral of the Publick Papers, fo fully explained, in few Words, the General Utility of the 5/. Martin's Scheme, That it has met with the loud Jpplaufe, Not only of many Other Diftricls, but the Whole County of Surry has honour'd It with their Approbation, by Refolving to purfue a Similar Plan, as appears by their Advertifements in the News-Papers.-And fhould the Merchant-Subfcribers at Garrawafs, think fit to Back and Support it with their Concurrence, Nothing elfe could be wanting to carry it, as far as poffible, into General Praftice-Which may be the more readily expefted, as it would be, indeed, and at the Bottom, but a very fmall Variation from Your firft Scheme ; The Important View of Safety to this Great Metropolis- being thereby effectually an-fwered. And the More General Purpofes of National Strength, and Vniverfal Security, Subftantially provided for againft every Enemy-1 his, it is Apprehended, will inconteftably appear from the following Plain Fa8- " When the Parifhioners of St. Martin's Affembled, to De-" liberate about raifing a Body of Men at their own Ex- the Same Common Caufe, and would be therefore Glad to fee it Supported and Aflifted in, what feems, the Moft effeaual Manner. lam, Gentlemen, Your Fellow Citixtn, j. Y. To the Author of the General Advertiser. S I R, WHAT the Parifh of St. Martin's have done is very laudable, and an Example that I hope other Out-Parifties will follow. But greater Things afetxpe8edfrom the City of London, and the Eyes of all England are upon us. As his Majefty can raife common Men, and give what Advance Money he pleafes, he wants notour voluntary Purfos to raife and pay them, for the Parliament will oblige ui'to find Money to do both the one and the other. To do his Majefty a real Service, we fhould raife fuch Men, as his late Royal Proclamation, and the Pay of our Parliament, can have no Effeft on. We may be lavifh of our own Money, but the Parliament will not be fo of Money that belongs to the Publick; and fuch Men who will not enlift in this Time of Danger on common Pay, fhould be tempted to do fo on better Pay by his Majefty's faithful Subjecb that are able. In doing this we give his Majefty the higheft Mark of our Loyalty ; and, on this Account onlv, 1 am for raifing a thou/and Men, to be Officer'd by his Majefty, and cloathed and paid by the City, according to an Eftimate I have feen printed at private Expence. The Men intended to be raifed, are to be picked out of reputable Protefiant Houfekeepers and Inmates,who have fome thing to lofe of their own, and a great deal to fear; on whom we can the better 2* to tear; on whom we can the better � lug or lucn Men, cannot leiieni the / er for his Majefty's marching Regi- iiiui, vaiuiui. lentil' uu Number of Men proper for his Majefty's marching Regi ments.
