Some cursory remarks by way of reply to a pamphlet, entituled, The grand point, lately carried by the common-council, has lost their main-point. Being a just vindication of the Commons of London, touching their proceedings in the late act for regulating the election of Aldermen. Also you have a plain proof that the Lord Mayor, with the aldermen and the commons, in Common-Council assembled, have power and authority sufficient to make such acts or by-laws, as will bind the citizens of London at all times. To which is added a particular account of the late proceedings of Sir Gilbert Heathcote Kt. and the Court of Aldermen, touching the election of an Alderman for Bread-street Ward, which was done not only contrary to law, but also is a manifest violation of their oaths in prejudice to their office and duty.
