To the Printer of the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette. [heading]
If the Person who handed you the "Caution against Shooting" Inserted at the end of your last week's Paper, had reflected, that common Sense and good Nature, were at least equally valuable with weak attempts at Wit, he would have spared you the trouble of Exposing to Public View a very foolish attempt, to excite a Laugh at the Expence of an Individual who has been already sufficiently Injured, by the means alluded to in his Advertisement. - Let me recommend to this [begin italicized] Bold Champion of the long ear'd Race [end italicized], who has thought proper to shelter himself, under the broad Coat of [begin italicized] The Public [end italicized], the following lines of one of the English Satyrists [sic]: -
Parts may be prais'd, Good Nature is ador'd,
Then draw your wit as seldom as your Sword,
But never on the Weak, or you'll appear
As there no Hero, no great Genio's here.
Or in more homely doggrel, let me address him thus:
Thou Cautious Scribbler, thing of silk,
Thou mere white Curd of Asses milk.
Why must thou Blockhead meddling be,
With matters that Concern not them?
