The following Letter came too late to Hand from the Country, or it Should huve been inferted Yefterday. To the Proprietors of the South-Sea-Stock. GENTLEMEN. HAVING feen a Letter addrefs'd to you in the l)j Poft, of the 14th Inftant, which feems to b-j a fcandrtlous Reflection caft upon both your former and prefect Courts of Directors, from a Battery pietended only to be erected againft their Clerks ; and being at this Juncture at too great a Diftance to attend your next General Court, I hope co be indulged with offering thefe Remarks to you, in order, at leaft,' to take off the MaSk from that Battery, if not to demolish it. The Perfon who figns 5. D. is not content with a bold ASfcrtion, That the Company's Clerks in tr e Transfer-Office act there more as Brokers than Clerks ; nor with reprefenting this as a notcriotw Breach of one of the Company's Bye-laws; but he compliments cur Directors with a Connivance at this Crime, and a Connivance fo obftinate as amounts to nothing Short of being Paiticipes Crimims : For he fays, that the Directors have been often t-Jd cf it, by the Brokers thereby aggrieved ; and tnat neverthelefs feveral of them have ftill employed their Clerks in Quality of Brokers: Nay, he goes fo far as to affirm, That tho' the Court of Directors have reviv'd the faid By-law, yet they have ftuck it up in a blind Place, where fcarce any Body can fee it, tho' iheTruth, is nothingcan be more conspicuous : And upon the Whole, S. D. feen s to lament that he does not know when there will be an End of this Grievance, becaufe, tho' he was himfelf to make Such a w is Speech as this at your next General Court, he infinu.iti-3 that the D--1 would be in the Chair : And therefore he infolently takes upon him to dictate to the Court of Directors, That at leaf one cf them Should attend at the Office every Transfer-Day, to iee that the C e ks k?ep behind the Counters, and that they don't interfere in the Brokers Monopoly in making Transfers. But now, Gentlemen, if you pleafe we will examine into the Nature of the Charge. In the-firft Place, as to the Bye-law, 'tis well known, that it was an Invidious one, inade?t the Inftigation of Sir J-s E--man, to be reveng'd on Sir J--1 Bl--1, by whofe Interest G-�ywas chofe Arcomp- tant, in Oppofition to the Perfcn nominated by Sir J-�-/. And'tis plain, that Sir J-s himfelf afterwards thought it an unreafonable Law, beeaufe while he was Governor of the faid Company, he never once put it in Execution againft any Clerk, tho' not only G-by, but another Clerk who has furvived him, got all they had by Stock-jobbing. Secondly, The Buying and Selling of Stock is a Branch of Bufinefs, which I am very well aSTur'd, was never, till very lately, denied to the Clerks of any of the Trading-Companies, (provided they did not neglect the Company's Bufinefs, nor abufe the Indulgence :) And I am credibly informed, that when a frivolous Complaint of this kind came before the Directors of the India Company, one of the Court declared, he was very glad to fee the Proprietors of their Stock Shew fuch Regard to their trufly Clerks, and he wifhed for the Safety of the Company that they were to negociate its whole Capital. Thirdly, As to the South-Sea Clerks buying and felling Stock, it does not feem to be in any Degree affected byA SbuttlewortJs's Fraud, as the Letter-Writer would fain in-finuate,fince he employed feveral Brokers to fell part of that fictitious Stock ; and whether he fold it himfelf, or other People for him, is nothing to the Purpofe. After this, Gentlemen, what mult we think of the Anonymous Wretch, who has been fo free of his Invectives on our Hon. Directors, whofe fjle Aim and Endeavour have evidently been to promote the Compsny's Jnte ett by the molt laudable Meafures, and who, if they have Suffer'd their Clerks to buy and fell Stock without any Detriment to their ftated Bufinefs of transferring it, are not Surely to be fo coarfely treated for indulging their Clerks in a Branch of Bufinefs, not only lawful, but immediately relative, ard, I had almoft faid, efential to their Office ?-Could fuch an impudent Suggeftion as S. D. has thrown out againft our Directors, proceed from the modeit Pen of a Royal-Exchange Broker, who tranfacts Bufinefs fairly betwixt one Merchant and another, or fome Sharping Stockjobber, who lurks in the Alley to Snap the next Bubble that comes in his Way ? , AD V ERTISE M EN TS-are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-ftreet. 0 fO: 6 ;
