Excerpt from A Collection of Tracts, Vol. 2 T heyiimagine now, that at the Opening of this Sef Hon, there was'a Defign carried on by forne, whom they will needs have to be very ill Men, to fecure, even in fome Degree, the very late Direetors 5 but we (fay they) were not tame'enough to admit or endure fuch an Ar tempt; {0 that they were forced to drop the Defign, ant? Join (at lead) in the Cry againf'c them, though they trembled at the Apprehenfion of every fact that 'fhouldn be difeovered. They. Could have been glad to have' flood by their old Friends but fince that mutt not be, the next Trial was to compound for their'own Security, by the Sacrifice of their Allies. But this Artifice is not; fatisfaelory 5 the People tell you that the belt 'and like lied Means to come to the Bortom of their Misfortunes, is' to begin at the Top. It is of very little Value to them how the lefl'er Cheats are difpofed of; they were {0 by Profeflion, and have ae'ted intirely in Charae'ter. Daniel had been devoured in the Den, it is prefumed that no body could have thought hardly of the Lions l\'o, no, the Authors of the Villainy are the Criminals 5 it is thofe that deliberately formed the Mifchief, and that hired and retained their little Creatures to execute it, who chiefly deferve the Enquiry of a Parliament.
