The General Advertiier. Numb. 3^82. TUESDAY, D E c e M b e R 24, 1745. \.......- i2 o To the Author4)/* the General Ajivbrtisek. IjIS equally true of the Political and Natural Body, that exceffive Fear andTendemeft multiply Diltempers and fhortei Life. N or is this db- feryatiott'verified in any^, Inftance, with more Certaiwy, than by the which follow that timcfi^us-arid; s.., pernicious Spirit of Hoarding up, Stoi^ey^ in T^^^ of Public �)anc;er. Notl^ng fo much eniMfes' thofe D,angers; or will render the Remo-val-of tbein more flow more difficult, or more expenfive. JT hope very few are fo abandbijed, (b void of every Sentiment of Virtue and public Honefty, as malicioufly to lay by Heaps of Money, 'with a Dejign, to diilrefs or ruin their dilhadted Country, ftrugling with Domeftic and Foreign Enemies!--Kjach Wretches' would be lei's, ipif-chievous, had they fo much honelt Courage as aftually to join the Rebel-Army: For then their EiForts would be knowni and^eir injured Country might hoje the cpen Treafon, not more criminal than this lecret Treachery, would in Time meet its jull Reward. But every Man who Itops the Circulation of Ca(h, as' ' efltejtial to the Body Politic as the Motion of the Blood to tbcHumlifi Body, by fecreting from public Service that f Money, which his own Knowledge and Confcience tell him, would be more beneficial to the Nation, if it paffed , with its former, usual CoRRENCyi the World murt look upon that Man, and he mufi look upon himfelf, as tready oWlruaiog the real Intereft of his Country ; and owever he may be timoroufly influrac'd by narrow Notions 0/ private Security 0*^, he i^ actually fumilhing Ammunition to that dangerous Battery of the Enemy, which , is levelled againftPublic Credit, ^ 'Tis fcarce poflible any Number of EngUpmen can con-t> cur jn a Meafure, that may in many Refpefts prove fo ^ ' pernicious to themfclves, as well as to their Country: But ^ even this Conijderation, that Others, do it, is a ftrong Rea-� ' fon Avhy every honeft Man fhonld by bis Jaions, as well as P 'his Wwds, exprefs his Abhorrence of a Practice that en-^ ct^c> our Calamities; and like Fear'and Cowardice in every other Inftance, expofe Men to greater Dangers, which they.muft encounter, with no more Pity and Relief than they juftly defence ; Dangers, not of a public Nature only, but of a primate, which I will not defcribe, but every Man's own Apprehenfions muft fuggeft. Every honeft Man muft wiih to fee Public Credit (ifp-portcdj And' why then Ihould not every honeft Man, whatever is done, or fuppofed to be done by others, contri-bttte his own utmoft Endeavours to fupport it ? Let every Individual do what is right, without confidering who does wrpng. SudiConduft will conciliate Efteem and univerfal Regard for theMonied Intereftj will give Vigour to Our Councils and to our Arms; animate and unite our Friends, and give 'our Enemies a moft vexatious Difappointment. For my own Part, I am fo fully convinced upon this Point, that ihould I ftretch out my Hand to gather up Money, I ihould be guilty of Jiabbing my Country in her Vitals; and if others were not more honeft, Ihe muft be inftantly deftroyed: And therefore, Sir^ you will always find that J, , , .
