SIR,. YOU havingpubliflied fome excellent Pieces this Win* ter in Favourof theprefent Conftitution, the following TracYpubHfhed at Edinburgh, proves fo clearly the Abfurdity of Indeftafible, Hereditary Right, that I think you would do a Service to the Country in publishing it, as it ihews the Folly cf the favourite Doftrine of the Jaco� bites ; and will oblige Tour Covfiant Reader* The RIGHT of the Houfe of STEWART to the Crown of SCOTLAND Conftdered. THE Difpute betwixt the Whigt and the Jacobjttf turning upon the two Points of Right and Expt-diency, moftof our late Pamphtearhave^been employed in confidering the latter. This Branch of the Argument is indeed that, which, in our Reafoning with the Wblgs, needs chiefly to be infilled on; but, in our Reafoning with Jacp* bites, can only be of Force, when their Notions of Right; are in the firft Place deftrbyed. A Perfon, perfuaded of' thedivine, indefeafible1 R:ght of Kings to got emtvroig, can never be .touched with Arguments drawn from their doing fo; and therefore, in all our Reafonings/with thefe People, this of Divine, Right ought particularly to be infilled on: 1 Indeed, the Arguments, advanced by the Whigs, againft this Monkifh Dream of divine, hereditary, indefeafiblet Right, have been fa many and,various, fo ftrong and con* vincing, that the Obflinacy of the Jacobites in maintaining it, is perhaps not the leaft furprizing Phcenomenon in N ature; but as y?t it is not Time to despair of their Coh-viaion. The Perfwafion of this gave rife to the following Thoughts; the End of publilhing them to the World being, to refrefh the [Remembrance of}nany, and, if the Author dare exprefc his Hope, to cofreft (if poffible) thf Prejudices of a few. If wearetrue.S�//irM, and the Author writes to none elfe, we cannot fail of being fired with Indignation, whenV ^t^^WwlllW^lre,. nor ever were, ^ free and inde^ pendent People; that we have been, fince Time immemorial, the abfolutc Property of a certain Family, wha claim us as their. Inheritance j that we are now the Pro* perry, not of a King, bdtthe Shadpw of a King^ the$a� nUh'd Race pf a Tyrant. Yet {his/ certain late MahU feftos have founded in oar Ears; wherein we, and. pur" Country, are claimed as tYieEjfate of one, who tells lis he pofleffes by Virtue of a divine* hereditary, indefeafible Grant. Whatever the Jttfobites maytbink of this, fufe there is no Man of common Senfe, but moft look upon \t as the groffefrAft^ont capable of being ofered himfelf pf his Country. prehend, that no Man can convey mbre Right to another! than he hattfelf� vetted with. ^- :~..-T~-"' Todemonftratesthis, they.�beg le^ve tp look back |s far jjeam 01 mi urana-saaugircer' Margareti m. ner 'ypy^ temtSorwayi the Rigfct pf Sacceffion to the CioWh' Scotbftf&meio be caUefLih Qdeftioni v1 Two c^jef Coaipetitots .appested,, both of them De* The o^^^b%^t%^ym.MMfm-^x^of^^ eldieft Daughter: Margaret i the pther^\Kpbert Bruc%r^fi%.
