As some most infamous and illiberal Cariacatures were stuck up in town this morning, tending to injure the honour of Mr. H. M'Kenzie and myself - I owe it to Mr. M'Kenzie's character and my own, through the medium of your Paper, to state, upon my honour, as a Gentleman, that there was no truth whatever in the subject of those Caricatures, which must have been invented by some evil-disposed person: and I, in consequence, feel myself called upon to declare, that Mr. M'Kenzie's conduct, during a late unpleasant affair was perfectly that of a Man of Honour and a Gentleman.
I am, Sir, your obedient servant,
H. Halket.
