Mr. Printer,
It is unfortunate that an error in Mr. Bond's account of the Toast drunk at the entertainment on the 15th ult. should have so much irritated the nerves of his Correspondents A.B. and an Observer, as to compel them to write with such acrimony and personality, the two pieces which appeared in his last number and it is also surprising, that he who pretends to so much moderations should have printed such, especially when the whole proceeds from his own mistake, "but whoever the Cap fits may wear it" it was however a duty incumbent on him to apologize for his incorrectness and to inform the public that the toast alluded to, being the last mentioned in his paper of the 20th ult. never was given, nor drunk to on the evening of the 15th ult. as any one of the company assembled on that occasion can confirm if necessary. Certainly the toast Giver could find many more proper subjects for Toasts, than condescend to honor by such public notice a few factious individuals.
A Subscriber.
NB. Much could be said in reply to, and fair remarks made on, the production of the Loyal A. B. and the Moderate Observer, were we blessed with the liberty of the Press, that grand palladium of British Liberty and Expositor of the vices and virtues of individuals, whether public or private characters.
