SIR, THE Letter I (aw in your �aper relating to the Importance of Cape-Britain, muft give a general Satis-' faction to every good Engliflman who reads it: But as the. Writer did not difcufs the Point fb'fulJy as I wifh'd, and as* the Subjecl deferves, give me leave to add the Seque), by! way of Supplement. \ * Why fhould we give up Cape-Britain ? for what Equi- ur ATlies, which they \ er^er will not or cannot hold ? With what Colour of Rea-: foncanit be expe&ed, that we fhould; not Qnly bear the ckief Burthen of the War (into which we entred at firft, and j which we ftill continue to carry on with fo much Cheaiful- i nefs and Alacrity, for the Sake of the Common Caufe) but alfo in the End pay the whole Pure We of a Peace ? All the Nations in Europe ant grafting at every the leaft Advantage in Trade. Trade is the grand Object which they all purfue. Will the Queen of fi-.with whom we are fo clofcly united, and who has the greater* Intereft in our Profperity, grant us any of thofe Privileges in Trade either'in the Nether/ana's or at Triefe, which fome Perfons here at home fo pom^pufly gave us Reafon to expert,? Will any of the ForeignlWers, who are engaged in the fame Caufe with us, take one Yard of our Cloth to put upon the Bac'. of a Angle, Soldiefr in the numerous Tro6ps Which we pay, to the Prejudice of their own Manufactures ? We are not yet reduced fo low as to take a poor Equivalent for Cape-Britain, and it is not in the Power either of Friends or Enemies to give us a good one. Shall we in Exchange accept of the Demolition of Dunkirk f No: For that Place has neither anfwer'd our Fears, or the Hopes of our Enemies, during the Courfe of the pre-fent War ; and 'tis for this Reafon, in all Probability, that ihey are fo ready to make the Offer. But perhaps we mail be told, that France will never make Peace unlefs we reftore Cape-Britain. Jf me will not, fo "touch the worfe for the weakeft : But let us not hear this from thofe who have it jn their Power, by a well regulated Militia, join'd to the Right .Difpofition which they who have the Management of our N�-y are making of our fleets, to render us formidable to France, to gam us the Ke/peft and Confidence of our Allies, and to make us the Admiration of alf Europe.' We have feen. how far a juft Spirit properly fhewn, how w Conltancy and Firmaef* in a good. Cauie will go. Had 'he brave King of Sardinia accepted Terms from theEne-j?y at any .Period of Time finec the Commenceromt of the War, he and his Pofterity muft have been for ever the Vaf-jali of France. Tho/ the Enemy was prefling^hiai oa every Jjje. and h PofFeffion of half hra'Country, he refua'd the wer with a generous Dtfdain. The:.Rei^I has. exceeded toe moft fanguine of hb Hopes, and ha* been atteaded *ith the mod glorious Corifeojfances to him and to his Al-k "n Thc G*"?nt Empref* of Germany fcorti'd to fiften to thtiPropofaU of France, even under the Walls of Vienna, fhe and all Europe now feel'the Effe�h of her Haoick Refolution. Is it fpr us then, a Kingdom feparated from ihfrreft of the World by an impregnftble^ulwark, defended by a powerful Navy, grown ftrong" by the $oppreffion of a rafh and defperate Rebellion, and cemented by * Unibrk unknown to former Times* is it for us, I fay,'to erjiige for Peace, and ignominiouflydeliver up ourbeft Weapon into us an eafier Prey hereafter: and all this, becaufe other-wife fome People caniiot enjoy greatPl-*t-9 {for which they have no Talents) without Trouble ? Thanks be to God the Pubtick does not call for Peadj opon fuch Terms,, The Publick knows who are forgiving up Cape Brifajn, and for what Reafons}; nor is it eafy toiee the Difference between thofe who feek the Deftru&ioH of their Country by an. avow'd Rebellion, and thofe whd are fecretlf for tabbing it to the Heart, except that the former a& the leaft dangerous, the mod open, and confequently the moft Manly Part. ^0t feyuftP*'7?? ^b BT* M -Reft- ^*TSnin?,l6n' ^''^NMtnielan & the County of bISB moft refpeclableTart of the M-- wilt not give up Cape Britain ; and if others are fo pufillanimoils as to sake fome faint Attempts towards it, and'tb Jet drop praiir' fei-mations in private what they wrjujd be at; their Fears will reftrain them,�r0m gpid'g farther} for a! hew Bi-J^-a is corning on'; gnd wimout preteading to the Spirit of Prophecy, 1 will venture to foretell, tiat the Parting with this Invaluable Place, under any Pretext whatfoeyer, wilHbrrn one of the ftrorigeft and moft powerful Oppqfitions this I Nation ever faw,;-tbat of the Whole People. a ^ LONDON.
