A familiar letter of reproof and humiliation to the Rev. Thomas Towle, Resident in Cripplegate Buildings; late Preacher in Rope-Maker's-Alley, near Moorfields, and now at the Little Meeting House, the Corner of Aldermanbury Postern, London Wall; on his late extraordinary conduct respecting the publisher and publication of that excellent evangelical work entitled, The new spiritual magazine, which is still approved and read with the greatest Pleasure and Satisfaction by all sincere, disinterested, and unprejudiced Professors of Religion and Virtue, notwithstanding the base Attempts of certain secret Enemies to the Cause of Truth. Comprehending several very important Queries, proposed to the serious Consideration of Mr. Towle, who is hereby called upon to give a public Answer, which we presume he cannot possibly with-hold, without appearing in a very aukward Light, and which is much wished for and expected by many, as it will naturally lead to a Controversy on the Subject, and to the Developing a great Variety of secret Anecdotes, of a very curious Nature to the Public at large. Together with A Word of Advice to the Rev. Messrs. Thomas Gibbons, Henry Hunter, John Reynolds, Samuel Palmer, Joshua Webb, Henry Mead, Daniel Fisher, Benjamin Davies, Samuel Brewer, William Bennet, Nathaniel Tiotman, Joseph Barber, John Stafford, Noah Hill, John Rogers, John Rippon, William Button, Richard Winter, Thomas Wills, John Martin, John Trotter, Henry Foster, John Newton, Richard Cecil, John Clayton, and Abraham Booth. Some of whom are supposed to have been imposed on by Misrepresentation, and their Signatures obtained by Surprize, when they countenanced an Advertisement, evidently designed to prejudice the Minds of the Weak and Unwary against a Work which it was certainly their Duty to encourage and promote. To which is prefixed an Introduction, including an exact Copy of the Advertisement here alluded to, a Sketch of the Dialogue which passed between Mr. Towle and Mr. Hogg in August, 1783, and several other authentic Documents and useful Remarks, worthy the Notice of all Persons who are Followers of the above Gentlemen. Including likewise, by Way of Explanation of difficult Passages, some occasional Remarks, and Notes of Illustration. The whole, revised, corrected, and improved, by a clergyman of the established church. Embellished with a head of Mr. Towle, curiously taken from the Life; Published for the Information of the World, and as a Beacon to guard others in future from being imposed on and deceived.
