From ^atuctiap November the 4th, to �>atur&ap November the nth, 1704. (^/."JP^O's the Government think to ftop my I I Month with all their Gravity ! I can JL�J Triumph on a Pillory, and Write an HTMN to it afterwards, as De Foe did. Thus Ridiculing the Sacred HTMNS of the Church, in Giving the fame Name to our Prof have and Nafiy SING-SONGS. Country-m. Bet what if they ihou'd Whip thee at a Cahs-Tailwhere the Mebb cou'd not Defend thee. Befidesa Handfome Pine upon thy 0�/r That wou'd be only Pining the Part), who are Oblig'd to fave me Harmlefs. But nonr of them will be Whiff'd for Me . And I come of a Family that-have a natilral Averfton 10 ' W� ! But Pll Petition the J2#*w topeHang'd, as I did her IWW, And then (he'll Forgive my H^/-ping, as he did. And I'll be as Grateful* to her for it, as I have been to him ! However thou feeft my, Obfervator sfl^ll gdda! As laft Wenfday, with the fame Booifelle/s Name. And Vol. 3. N. 67. to.cQntinue.itirom.myL8ft,on laft Saturday,t\\zt)ay t)f myTry*/. That theftrx may be Compleau Wasn't that i. Cunning trick ] I tell thee thou haft got a i\&n? Obfervator. And who is that ? Why it is I my felf, that offer my felf to thee Again. If it were another Obfervator, he woutf Begin a new Number, and not take my Volume and Number^ and go on with it. And fay it was from laft Saturday. Nor wou*d he have had the Impudence to Vindicate the Obfervator againft the Sentence of the Court, as I do, and fay of him, He was always a well wifher to his Country, and a Zealous Defender of Liberty and Property. Whereas he was found Guilty for his Wicked Attempts againft all thefe. And fhews his Loving Inclinations in that fame WENS-DAY*s Obfervator, where he fays, And wou*d not you have fuch Men as Betray their Country Abroad, or that fell it at Home, be Hanfd^ Drawn and Quartered,, or if the Law will not Reclaim them, have them DE-WITTED? Thus you fee I am the fame Man ftill. And therefore will go Backwards with thee, and keep on the fame Chat we us'd to have, upon my Former Ohfervators. While they Came out Three times a Week",. I pretended it was in Order to my Try at. But as I told thee before, it was for the Beginning of theParliament. And to Anfwer the Ends of the Publick, for which I am Entertai�*d. Therefore I fpentO�* of them, that of Otl. 28. Vol. 3. N. 64. Upon My Queen's SPEECH. And therein Echo over again her Majeftys Exhortation to Peace and �Won at Home, while we are Engag'd in WAR Abroad. And the life I make of it, is, To turn all the Wranglings and Jangling* among ,Us upon the Church-Party. And there I take Opportunity to have another Stroke at. my old Friend Sir George Rook, By way. of Excufe. I fay thus, To have the Nation Hurry d into Contention about the Condntt of one Man, that is grown great in Office, when perhaps one Hundred part of the Nation knows Nothing of the Bufinefs  It may be Jufl as much as the Towns-Men of CALNES "know of the Advantage of Taking GIBRALTAR.- I fay, when a Nation is Engaged in fucla little trifling Contentions, it may give Room for our E-nemies to believe that they may Engage Vs yet ingrea-ttr Divifions; When indeed, as her Majeflf mofl Excellently fays, THERE OVGHt fO BE NO CONTENTION AMONG VS, BVT WHO SHALL MOST PROMOTE THE PVBLICK WELL-FARE. Here, Country-Man, I make Sir George Rook the great Bone of Contentionthro1 the Nation. Which will make him very Obnoxious to the Common Peo~ pie 5 That the Nation fftou'd be kept in DivifionJ upon his Account ! And you know the Natural Confequence of that is, That he be Removed out of the way ; when. WEClamour againft hira ! 'Country-m. But you make him Vnknown to the Hundred Man, in the Nation. How then can he be 2 National Quarrel ? - Ofc/LThou'rfc always putting me out ! I faid that only to Lefen him, to-fhew how Incovfidera* ble heris^ That he's no more Known in the Nation, than the. Advantage of Taking Gibralter ( there I. , have him again \) is known to the Towns-Men of Calnes, Country-m. But, Hark ye, Bays, Who is it has made all this Stir about Sir George Rook ? For tho* he is known to as many as know there is an En-glijh Fleet, And fpoke of with that Efieem and Honour he juftly has Merited-. Yet his Name made no Stir in the Nation, nor was Blown about in Print, but by Thee and thy Scandalous Clubb, who have been Laying at him thefe Two Years paft or more* Expofing and Ridiculing him in the Groffeft manner. And even for his,Taking of Gibraltar, and his Vitlory over the Grand Fleet of France For which I have givefi thee Due Correction before. And the! very Week after the News of his taking Gibraltar, &c. came over, out came little Colepeper Barking at his Heels; And his Comical Romance was Differs d over City and Country, and Advertised for 3 Month ox more together, in all your Scoundrel Payers. Thefe things Oblig'd fome of'Sir George's Friends to Publifi a Narrative of his Exf edition, and to do Him and the Nation Right. For fb Ex-ceedingvras the Malice of the Whiggs againft Sir , George, (becaufe a Church-Man) That rather than he Ihou'd have the Credit of doing any thing that was Brave, or Vfefull to England, they took all the Pains they Cou'd, and thou amongft them the Foremofi Man, to Tarn this Vitlory to ;the French fide; And to Reprefent the Taking oiGibraltar^ as of no Vfe or Confequence at all} Tho' thou before Mad'ft it the .Key of the Levant; And.Re-proacbtffi this fame Sir George, for not having Ta~ ' ' " . ~ , ken
