I Believe that a Woman is generally at the

Bottom of Mischief, and that great Mischief

is generally at the Bottom of a Woman. I Believe I could prove, by the Rule of good

Fellowship, that a Beau makes a Figure only among Cyphers, and that he is a Cypher among Figures. 1 Believe that my very good friend, Mr. Con. greve, was in the right, when he questioned whether the Bible saved more Souls in Wefta minster-Abbey, than it damned in WestminsterHall.

I Believe that some Lords are wise, and some

are otherwise.

I Believe that Father Abraham was older than

his Son Ifaac.

I Believe that three Groats makes one Shilling,

and not three Shillings.

I Believe that the Anathemas of our Inferior

Clergy are not ratified in Heaven; and that there is a Power on Earth which can reverse them, maugre the Opinion of the charitable and meek Dr. Sacheverell.

I Believe that the said Gentlemen love Est

ing and Drinking as well as their Neighbours.

I Believe that some Lords deserved to be

Kenmurized who now Sleep in a whole
Skin.

I Believe that Gregg was a Fool and a Traitor."

To the AUTHOR of the

Independent Whig.

SIR,

T is with great Satisfaction that I see you, and others, appear publickly in defence of
