SAID TO BE SPOKEN IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
ON THE TWENTY-SECOND OF MARCH, 1775.

DE ÄN OF GLOCE S T E R.
GL O CESTER:
AND SOLD BY
HE present critical Junęture obliges
the Author to postpone his AnimadT
versions on Mr. Locke's Theory of Government for fame Time longer.
But the Public may be assured, that he has not dropped the Defign; and that he only poftpones it, because the present Subje£t feems to require a more immediate Attention. In the mean while, the Learned and Judicious will easily perceive from several Parts of this Discourse, and particularly from what he has advanced, Page 11, that he is fixed in his Plan, and that he has selected these Positions out of Mr. Locke's Book for his future Animadversion, which are the most inconfiftent with any form of Government, Republican or Monarchical, and therefore the most dangerous to real Liberty.
