Daily Advertiser (Newspaper) - January 28, 1943, London, Middlesex r �J * 'J via.; 3753 R IDA 1t VARY 2$ 743 hitter the 742 Writer df OBSERVATIONS on a illy Poll 0/ the iotb of J-anux effd to the Proprietors of the South-Sea Stock. I. Knight, till the Year 1720, was as generally efteera'd as known; and if he fell in that Year, when fo few flood, a good-natured Man would chiife to recoiled* fuchCircumftances as might extenuate (and many fiich there were) rather than aggravate k� ffenlt  But iriftead of this, the the Letter in the pkily Poft of'the zoth inftant, after ton-eluding Mr. Knight gpilty, fropi the Preambles ctf feveral A&s of Parliament, (which have been thought by many iinprejudiced Perfons very extraordinary, both as to the Matter and Manner of pafling them) has ^ffirm'd, that JWr. Knight ftands thereby charged as indebted cany-in no lefs a Sum than .8600001. If Truth would ferve the Turn* every Man would ufe it* but when it will hot, fojne Perfons are not f Means, even when they; 'are ceafuring cthen for want of Hoheffy. If the Letter-Writer could inake the Proprietors believe, that Mr. Knight was really. Debtor to the Company in fo great a Sum as 8600001, this, befides the Tendency it would have to inflame the Proprietors agaiiift jhim, would lead them to think that a great part of that Sum may probably remain in his Hands, and confequepdy to look.upon any Sum he may offer as a Trifle 1 Whereas had the Writer informed the Proprietors, (as the Fa�t is) that in an A& made (amongft other Things) for Payment of Mr. Knight's Creditors, {which Payment was obftru&ed by the Company's Claim) this great Sum was mentioned barely as a Claim entered before the Truftees, and that this Chum had not been profecuted; and. at the feme time had told them that 700000 L of itarofe, not fro Money received by Mr; Knight, but on the contrary, from 'theSubfcribers to the 3d and 4thSubfcription having faiPd to ^ay their Subfcription-Money ; and that this Deficiency had been reported to the Directors in the beginning of Auguft and that the Refidue of the 8600001- had" been good a Suhfeffc, and cjerfar'd to them, that for the iture there Qioukt be no fcrime Mmifter. It's aflur'd that the Troops that co -Jarihad Belleifle are upon their March,~ in order to come and take up their Quarters in tranche ComtL An ExtraS of a Letter from the Hagu e, dated Jan. 25. * The Peputation which the States of Holland a few Days * ago fent to the Brille, in order to peribade the Council e of that Town to:defift from .oppofing the Refoltftion * which has been taken for fupplying the Queen of Hun-' gary with 25000 Men, is returned, and has therein been ' luccefsful; but,the, laft that was fent to Dort is not yet ' reti*rifd, ;and for that Reafon 'tis hoped they have like- * wife fucceeded, otherwife, 'tis thought, they would * have feturaM immediately.

It is likewife a^rua'd in the Le ttcr, that Mr, Knight hasJknt ieveral hundred thoufand Pounds of the Company's Money, which may be loft for want of his Evidence : If this Faft k 'true, 'tis ftrarige that it fhould be known only to the Writer of this Letter; andbeforeitis believ'd, fome better EVidence of it will be expefted, than the bare Affirmation of one, who does not appear to be very cautious in affirming Fafts. The introducing the Cafe of Mr. Waite with the Bank, on thisOccafion, could proceed from nothing but the Pleafure of making an ill-natur'd Comparifon; which the Writer would furely have denied himfelf had he confider'd the Difference between the two Cafes. Mr. Waite is fuppos'd to have carried off what he was entrufted with : Mr. Knight,^ [ Bl-igadier*Geneial Blakeney, Col. Martin The Minifter of.Hungary detain'd the Courier of the , fee -Warni t0 ^ Lbinet of the Queen, m order to know before he i , _ . ve forfeited feveral ve lately been foed e, they have thought It .is Kop'd this will N.

Yefterday an Exprefs arriv'd at the � when he left the Kingdom, had in his Cuftody 2600001. of the Company's Bonds, and, in his iPower nerar 200000L of the Company's Cafh; all which he defignedly left behind him,- from a Principle of Honour and Integrity, for the Company's Ufe, iriftead of taking them away as the Means of making his Peace. Perhaps the Writer of the � Letter, rather than not find Fault, may blame Mr. Knight's ; Indiscretion in this Particular. Confidering the malicious Spirit which appears throughout  this Letter, and another in the Daily Poft of the 24th jnfranr, (which is probably the Work of the fame delicate . Hand) it may be thought unneceiTary to have taken any Notice_of either 1 but left any Perfons fhould' think it impdfible for any Man, how eftabliih'd foever his Character faight'be for Ill-Nature, and the Want of Decency* tp knifreprefent Fa�ls in fo grofsa manner, it was thQught proper, for the Sake of Truth and )uftice� tbmake^iefe Iffcw Obfelyations. ^ - ; The Letters fpare no Body. The Writer act contented , with mifreprefenting Mr, Knight's Cafe, has irifiriuated, in a Manner ea'fily underftodd, and defign'd to be fo, many ( fcandalous and groundiefs HefleSions on Perfons of the higheft Rank; and has treated the Dire&ors (whofe pajft , Coriduft fidly juftifies the Proprietors'Choice of them) in fuch a ntannerx that if the Proprietors, in .general were to imitate his Example, none but Knaves or Fools would accept of fuch a Truft.
