Audi alteram partem, or a counter-letter, to the Right Hon. the El of Hllgh, His M-'s P-l S-y of S-e for the C-s, on the late and present state of affairs in the island of Gna. In which it is clearly demonstrated, that the troubles and Confusion which have so long subsisted in that island, to the Distraction of Government, and to the irreparable Loss of the long-suffering Inhabitants, took their rise, originally, and solely from the arbitrary and partial disposition of Governor M-ll; from his total Ignorance of the British Constitution, and the Interests of the People whom he was appointed to govern; and from his perverting or dispensing with the Laws. And That these Disturbances have since been kept up by a Continuance of the same Causes; by his implacable and ill-founded low Resentments; by his little and mean Preferences and Affections; by his modelling the Council to his Mind, by the Introduction of his Creatures: But Above All By his Unwillingness, or Inability, to incorporate into the Legislation, his M-y's new acquired, and well-disposed Subjects, the Capitulants of G-n-a, in Conformity to the gracious Intentions of our S-n, and to the salutary Measures of his M-y's M-s, for carrying those Intentions into Execution.
