WHEN humanity",fend publid virtue fufFer, every humane and public-fpi-rited bofom fhares in the affliction. Should a martyr to the'fe molt excellent and beneficial endowments of the mind, in the hour of his diilrefs, call upon that publick which he had jus own pnvate affairs ; and that^his gave j feived, furely every hand would be opened, every heart would be zealous for his relief. But, alas ! hew often is the fympatKzing b re aft of humanity deluded by falfe appearances, and the bounteous ftream of charity drawn out of its proper channel of virtuous diftrefs, to nourilh the rank weeds of vice, or improve the growth pf idlenefs and pride ? Under the partial informations which we receive, how often are the moft felf-interefled actions intruded upon us for fhining initances of virtuous patriotism ? What I have advanced 'is by no means defigned to check the kind intentions of the benevolent, but. to (hew the neceffity'that every candidate for.publick benevolence is under, to give all poflible fatif-faftion .^p the generous enquirer; fince it requires the ftrifleit inquifitiori, as well as the cooleft judgment, to diflinguifh the real fuf-ferer from the impoftor, and him that ibffers in the caufe of virtue, from him who only bears thfe juft confequence of his vices.   You are to know, Mr. Editor, I happen ;to live near one of thofe places which the unfortu* nate Mr. Thomas Holland has advertifed for the reception of his fubferiptions; and what has led me into the above reflexions, is this: Some perfons of worth, whom I have the honour of being known to, in the country* have applied to me for. my opinion concerning that unhappy gentleman, whether I thought [Price Tv>o-penc* Halfpenny.] the public-fpirited profecution, alledged. bjr him to have been the occafion of the prefent diftrefs, was really fo, or whether fuch allegation might not bp made ufe of as a motive to excite that compaffion,which a true knowledge of-the caufes of his prefent difagrceal e fituation would not excite.   Thefe enquiries embarraffed me greatly, as 1 knew they proceeded from a kind intention to relieve.   I was very loth to utter a doubt; yet could not help wifliing Mr. Holland had directed hi* fubferibers rather to fome gentlemen wh*.fe characters for' worth and .honour were well eftabliftved, than to have relied wholly upon ,theftrength of his own afiertions, and named nothing but coffee-haufes and the publifhers-pf his pamphlet, for the reception of donations.  I am an entire ftranger to the perfon and characterof this unfortunate-gentleman-; -and if the tale related 'by him is itrtdly true> I moft. heartily wifli the Publick may teiiify their approbation of his conduct, by fubferib-ing a fund fufficient, not.onJy to difcharge all' his prefent incumbrances,- but to place him in that free and independent- fituanon which ib worthy a citizen juftly, merits.  If Mr. Holland Jhould think proper to give attention to' this hint, I am confident he will find the complying with it of the utmoft confequence" to his caufe ; and I cannot help thinking, thut' if the Publick were put (as far as the nature" of the thing will admit) out of all-danger of being deceived, there is fcarce^a gentleman pf fpirit in the nration Jthat would not be ambitious to-cbhtnbute^iniome Bianner or other,. not only toward^Rf^slief, but his reward. I amy Sir, Your's, &c. A Frjend to Truth awd Virttje. [%# We cannot think that any doubt can be entertained of Mr, Holland's integrity* as thofe of his creditors, nvbofe nam.es are publijhcd, may ea-fly be reforted to; and as vt)e kno-w fonts of than tc be men of credit and refutation, it is a^ery probable they nuouid. not r if ufe to fatisfy any reafon-able enquiries.] To the  P r 1 n t e r Si prin- i tiations, particulieres iu Che-valier D'Eom Mi-niftre Plentpotentiaire de France, aupres 'da Hoi de la Grand BretagnfiXhsxt is the'following very remarkable paffage in the account of'his diiburfements, to be repaid him by hi cipal, pags ijz% Juin 15, 1763.
