HE Powers of Grub-ftreet have made
no small Figure in the World for
these three or four Years last past; T
for, if we may believe a certain Party amongst us, it is they who
have held the Ballance of Europe in their Hands, and all the, Miscarriages and Disappointments which have attended the wise Projects of certain Persons, have been charged to the wicked Intrigues of this Set of Men.
If you will examine the Pamphlet, callid Observations on the Treaty of Seville, supposed to be written by a most profound Politician; if you will look into several other Papers which come from the fame Quarter, you will find it there positively asserted, that it was the most serene Powers of Grub-street, that hinder'd the King of - from accepting the Provisional Treaty, and some of them (as I am credibly inform’d) have been so bold, to declare that they are sorry they were not able to hinder him from accepting of the Treaty of Seville likewise. But let that pass. It is they who drive the
K- of P. into another Alliance, and put it into his Head to quarrel about two or three Trutes VOL. II.
