Qbfc.yW we Synibble fometimes, I'll Aflift ihkt wJfat f can, Hoaeft Countryman, Come tell . Counky-m. I am Summon'd before a Jujticeof upon the Complaint of fome Servants of mifce,Vho fay I have Broke Articles with them. 0/7. What were your Articles ? Country-m. I agreed with them for their Work, and their Wages. And there is no Dilute betwixt &s as ttf That. About what then? Country-m. They liv'd at the Beginnirg very Vtaceably and WW/, and fiibmitted to the and Cifioms of the Family, without any Grudghg. And tho' I keep a Great Farm, and Employ nu-jjy Servants^ yet I can fay it, no Family in the Ctoftry Was in Better Qr^r, with more Zcw and Kindnefs among our felves, than mine. BUE at la ft, fomeof my Servants grew Peevifi. They fad, That the Colour of the 'Cloaths I was to Cive them, nor. being Expnfs^d'm the Articles, they won'dno longer Wear that Colour they had before. Nay, they found Fault with the Colour and 'Shape of my own Cloaths; And faid, That Neither %My Wife ar Children fhou'd Wear /ac/;, 4We always Pad done Before.They faid it was an Offence to Them toy** it, tho' upon OUR Backs! And not being Exvrefe'd in the Articles with Them, they,were not Obliged to 2?**r with it. And tffat oiir Wearing fuch j6rf of Cloaths, was 30 Imfoption upon Tfow, and Putting iV�H^ v&v*'-c/k,upon Tfow, which were riot in.'our firft^- *|f^it!|fig�^^' with the Honrs always ^^^*|^i^�7y for Meal*Time\ and going to M^^w"%uftingthe JDwrj.

Tfteri th^ BrpMofffrom our Family-Prayers, which* I alwa^tue,' eVery Night and Morning. They.faidtthey didjao�them. obf. Whac fort prayers do you ufe > Country-m.^ Gobd grayer, one for Morn" i"g* and another &iWtm^g, which. my F*rkr and Grand-Met bdhfe Utt^AjWapWd: And feverll have feea ft, aftdfiy-iE is an Ex- cellent Prayer, And fo thefe Servants of mine thought, and found no ^#It for a: long time. But now lay, That Ndfiy FO&i$flPrayer. And that they can make B'etterthtmtiiHcs. And that They ought to make Prayers, in the Family^ as well as I. Then fbme of then* �ay7 That I mu� not Sing a Pfalm. T\&tSinging\% Foolijh. Others fay, I may Sing, bull muft not Sing WELL, or Better than Thty, hut after the fame Scurvy manner that They do, like the Creeling of their Carts. They lay, They will not have the Head of the Table in my Hall (where. I ufe to fay Prayers to my Family) Hand towards the Window, but put in the. M'.ddle of the Hall, And 100 fuch like Freak-Jl) things. They will- not let my Weather-Col* fond upon my Houfe, becaufe there is a Cop upon it, Pointing to the 4 Winds^ which they fay is Popery or Witch-Craft! And they fay, Is there any thing in our Articles obliging Us to Weather-Cocks ? Therefore they fay, That all thefe things are hnfofing New Conditions of Service upon them-And they Rail at me, as a Perfect Tyrant, becaufe I will not Pleafe my Servants, and Purchafe the Peace of my Family, by giving up fuch Indifferent things. Tho it wouM Highly Difguftrfb the Reft, and Beji Part of my Family. Obf. Which Indifferent things ? Dothey Name them ? So that if you Grant fuch and fnch to them, they wilt Return to their Duty, and Jive Orderly in the Family. Countrym. No. They will not Name ANTt fo as to be Concluded, if fach be Granted. This I have often Trefs'd upon them 5 And that I wou'd Comfy with them, as Far as Poffible, not Quite to Ruin my Family. Obf WhaE Anfwer do they give ? Do they Plainly fay, That Nothing will Content them ? Conntry-m. They Demand of me, Dijfenten That I WOU'd Abate fuch things only^ Anfoertotbt and ALL SVCH, as are Acknow- Higb-Owcb ledgd by my felf to be Indiffe- TW* rent. Obf All fuch I That is Plainly faying, that Nothing m\\ Content them. It is to Bid youGive up the Government of your Houfe Entirely into their Hands. For there are but 3 fort of things i$ the World, Good, Bad, and Indifferent. The GOOD Oblige by their own Nature, and the Command of GOD. The EVIL> are by the fame Forbidden^ and your Children or Servants are Obliged not to Obey yori, if you fliou'd Command them. So that it is the INDIFFERENTonly whereto your Authority Reaches. And if you Cannot Command in INDIFFERENT things, you can Command ia NOTHING a? aff. What fort of a of a Family is ity wfiahas no Authority in the L*e/? INDIFFERENT thing ? And what fort of Gw-fcienceh Jhat; wfilC^wittflp* 0^ his Mafier, for no Other Realo% but Becaufe he Commands hirh to do fbmething that is Indifferent I And tfhlcn he Declares tie wourd be-free to do, if ho were fiot fo Commanded I Country-m. ;
