Mr. Rivington' s Explanation, March 16


The Committee have not been precise in their manner of publishing my reply; to the above particulars, I added, "that what was related in my Paper was credited; yet if they would furnish me with accounts of their Proceedings, I might be able, to print them without errour."

I cannot think my conduct on this occasion merits so formal and publick a reprehension; a reprehension highly favouring of Legislative authority, seemingly calculated to aggrandize the power of the accusers, and to disparage the political reputation of a persecuted, and, to the everlasting disgrace of many County Committees, a proscribed Printer.
