With a proposal for carrying a new design into execution. To which is added, a letter from a country gentleman to a Governor of the Hospital: Containing Many Observations relating to Foundlings born, educated, or employed, in the Country; collected from real Facts: With his Opinion concerning the Amendments necessary.
