To the Editor of the Royal Gazette,
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,
