A man

After all that can be thought on these subjects, I must confess, that the men who dress with a certain ambition to appear more than they are, are much more 'excusable than those who betray, in the adorning their persons, a secret vanity and ine clination to shine in things, wherein, if they did succeed, it would rather lessen than advance their character. For this reason I am more provoked at the allegations relating to the clergyman, than any other hinted at in these complaints. I have, indeed, a long time, with much concern, observed abundance of pretty fellows in sacred orders, and shall in due time let them know that I pretend to give ecclesiastical as well as civil censures. well bred, and well dressed in that habit, adds to the sacredness of his function, an agreeableness not to be met with among the laity. I own I have spent some evenings among the men of wit of that profession with an inexpressible delight. Their habitual care of their character gives such a chastisement to their fancy, that all which they utter in company is as much above what you meet with in other conversations, as the charms of a modest are superior to those of a light woman. I therefore earnestly desire our young missionaries from the universities to consider where they are, and not dress, and look, and move like young officers. It is no disadvantage to have a very handsome white

hand but were Izto preach repentance to a gallery of ladies, I would, niethinks, keep my gloves on. I have an unfeigned affection to the class of mans kind appointed to serve at the altar, therefore am in danger of running out of my way, and growing too serious on this occasion; for which reason I. shall end with the following epistle, which, by my interest in Tom Trot, the penny-post, I procured a copy of.. in To the Rev. Mr. Ralph INCENSE, Caplain to the 1 Countess Dowager of BROMPTON.'


“I heard and saw you preach last Sunday. I am an ignorant young woman, and understood not half you said : but ah! your manner, when you held


hands toward our pew! Did you design to win me to Heaven or yourself?

“ Your humble servant, : 1,
