To SAMUEL STEPHENS, Esq. M. P.
TREGENNA CASTLE, CORNWALL.
THERE is something so despicable in adulation that, in endeavouring to avoid the very appearance of it, I may possibly fall into the opposite extreme, and neglect a duty which justice imperiously demands.
Whether I consider your character in a senatorial or domestic light, I am fully sensible that the highest eulogium would not be misapplied, but I shall withstand the strong impulse of my own feelings, through the fear of doing violence to your's.
