Good Sir [electronic resource]: In Drawing the Out-Lines of a Grand Scheme (the Principles of Which Meet With Almost General Approbation) a Little Obsurity I Thought Was Necessary, to Prevent Caviling; But, by Your Pertinent Questions and Judicious Remarks, a Present Explanation May Facilitate the Principal Intention, I. E. To Raise a Large Capital, by Subscriptions, Benefactions, &C. From the King, the Royal Family, the Nobility, the Merchants, the Public Companies, the Gentlemen Concerned in the Brewery (Whose Interest Will Be the Most Speedily Promoted, and Enable Them to Serve Their Customers With a Better Commodity), and All Others of Ability, Who Are Endued With True Patriotism, Generosity, Benevolence, and a Regard for Improving Their Country, and Increasing Its Power and Opulence. Hints Humbly Devised to Forward the Grand Intentions; Viz. After Appointing Proper Committees, Treasurers, and Other Requisite Officers, and Managers in the Country, to Engage and Pay Those Who Want Employment, &C. To Improve Commons, Heaths, &C. In Their Present Uninclosed State, by Levelling, Draining, Weeding, Sowing Proper Grass and Other Seeds, &C. The Commonable Grounds Within Ten Miles of London: Would Create Great Employment, and Tend to Lower the Prices of Provisions, and Be a Great Relief to Trade, &C. But, as Employment Near Londou Would Be Most Convenient. Would It Not Be of Great Public Benefit, &C. If the Charitable Association Was to Obtain Legal Powers to Create Employment, by Making a New Road to Greenwich From a Convenient Place in or Near Saint George's Fields, in a Direct Line? To Furnish Materials to Raise the Road, a Wide Trench Might He Cut, to Serve as a Navigable Canal. What Great Works Cannot the Munificence of the British Nation Effect!-Let This Suffice for the Present
