Articles of the Annuitant Society.
BOUT the year 1766, several persons entered into a society under the title of bodies of people have published their schemes to the world; but not one of them appears to me so well calculated for general utility as The Public ANNUITANT SOCIETY. The plan, it must be allowed, is greatly superior to any thing hitherto oficred to the public; it is built upon a more permanent 'foundation, and uliered into the world with greater credit and reputation, as it is countenanced by Sir Richard Glyn, B116Det, who is the president.' I Mall not fay any thing invidious with regard to come other societies, but I cannot help observing, that I had much rather become a member of The Public ANNUITANT SOCIETY than any other : I therefore hope, that, for the good of the public you will insert, in your next Magazine, the inclosed pro posal, which will doubtlets oblige many of your readers, and particularly, your molt humble servant,
