2 cannes be infenfible bow I bave been used, and in what Manner for three Weeks past, and what different Sentiments fome Pate entertain'd concerning me, calling me Bomaree, Old Stuff, and many other hard and approbius Names in the Publick Frints; but I was handled in fo reugh a Manner, last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, being the three last Days before y Execution, that I catch'd a prodigious Cold, and on Friday Night was obliged to retire, having the lead-ach to a great Degree; but confidering bow fort my Time was, and the great Diftrefs of fome of my best friends, who appeared to me gry Dil and Melancholy, was determin'd to leave them the following Legacy, for their ocon perujal, and their Children after them; which I penn'd in Part after Nine O'Clock, and finifl'd the next Morning early, knowing that it would be a very bufy Day with me. After I had taken a little Breakfast, which lay very hard in my Stomach, I was hurry'd about from ere Part of the Town and Province to another in a meft violent Manner, fo that by One o'Clock, I could foarcely fetch my Breath: After Dinner (having had a very poor Appetite, knowing the doleful Scene was not far off) excu fame of my best Friends began to be thy of me, threatning to but rp their Shops, because I was thrown in upon them fufijt. out balf Hour before Sun-fet, thefe who were very fond of us ONCE, ran about Town as if they were diftraties, for fear I fould die in their Hands, and were as glad to get rid of me as if I bad been a Rattle-fnake; which brough; to my Alind the Fable of an aged Hound being in pursuit of bis Game, caught it, but could not hold it, because his Teeth were worn out; for which bis Majter corrected bim very fecerely. The Dog begged that be might not be punished, alledging that be was old; The Maral of which is, Many People are so ungrateful as to take no Notice of the Ninety-nine good Turns, which they baût received, if the Hundredub is denied them.
SSSSSSHat doleful Cries are thefe that fright my Senfe!
And by that Name have many Years been known.
When your Guts grumbl'd and your Heads have ak'd
I bought you Caps, I bought you Shoes likewife,
I bought you Guns, and Drums, and Swords indeed,
I then flood ready for to be your Friend.
When your Hearts fail'd, I purchas'd you good Cheer,
I then rous'd up, which was not quite in vain.
I rais'd an Army, to Cape Breton fent,
Who took that Place, which made you all content:
