A letter from a newly-married young Lady : 46 Pray be fo good as to take my cafe into con-fideration, for 1 lead a moil wretched life, 1 verily think for no fault of mine ; but I cannot be heard in my own defence, amidft the clamours of a mother and two maiden dunts, who abufe and becai me without mercy and modeft'y, and without end. 44 I was the daughter of a very worthy Gen-tleman-farmer,- who died twelve years ago, and left a moderate income for the maintenance of my mother and me, who was his only child, bur ten years old when he died. My father had a brother, who went to the Indies three years after I was born, not in the mod reputable way, and was never heard of till the year 1763, when he employed a correfpondent, to whom he had remitted large fums, to enquire after his brother's family; and, hearing I was alive, and the only child, he made his will, and gave me his whole fortune. He died in his pafiage home lail year, and I became a very conffderable fortune indeed, efiOugh to make me the objed of Lord-'s addrefs, and to procure me an offer from the fon of �....., the rich Jew.   My mother pvelled me to accept my Lord; my two aunts favoured the rich Jew : but I had very different thoughts in my head, and. fchemes .upon my hands ; I hud been from .a girl acquainted -and conncded with the fecond fon of the minifter of the pari flu lit ia or two IhU lags m tpe ooima coueucu equany i , tWQ        0,def than me   we had been through England, - would produce much morel v Jnlav.M\mvs toother: at fourteen than the prefeht fum of four {hillings, as now impofed, and thereby 'relieve; the fuojed tram feyeral taxes that are moil feverely felt.

All meffages or letters were forbid being received at my mother's dobr from the parfonage; and unlefs they will read this, which I will take care to put in their way, I fhall never get an expoftulation with them. ^VvLkWow, my honoured mother and aunrs, you every day have prayers in your family, and very devoutly read the pfalrns and chapters; I beg to-morrow, when the Prayer-book is in your hands, you would turn to the form of matrimony, for it was a tender fubjed for him to mention, 1 at laft had fome hint of it made known to Lord Albemarle.
