Edition Notes

'The Charge' (pp (3) to 14; the 'Argument' (pp (15)-35); 'Postscript' (p. 36).

The DNB article on Sir James Marriott, speaking of this publication, quotes Gray, who wrote: 'It moved the town's people to tears and the university to laughter'; he was described as 'less deficient in talent than in soundness of judgment'. in his youth he was 'gay and volatile', and even in the admiralty court he displayed excessive jocularity. Gray wrote of him in 1766 that his follies should be pardoned 'because he has some feeling and means us well''.

The 'Argument' has separate, sectional title-page, reading: 'Argument in the Case of the Poor's Rate charged on the Colleges of Christ and Emmanuel, in the University of Cambridge. 1768'.
