Excerpt from A Short Historical Sketch and Account of the Expences Incurred Under the Heads of Civil List, Pensions, and Public Offices: With Some Observations on the Conduct of the Modern Reformers, in a Letter Addressed to a Friend It may not be amiss, in the first instance, to make some observations 'oh' the character and views of the persons who have erected themselves into a sort of' club of reformers, and to 'give a general description of the means which they have adopted for carrying their plans into effect. The leading members of this club have, in' a manner, fixed their head-quarters in London; among them I could point out several individuals, whose admiration of the pr1nciples of the French revolutlon induced them, some years since, to take every possible step, under cover of the word Reform, to introduce a similar revolutwn in this country.
