Excerpt from The Guardian: Complete in One Volume, With Notes, and a General Index
I have, in my second paper, mentioned the family into which I was retained by the friend of my youth and given the reader to under stand, that my obligations to it are such as might well naturalize me into the interests of it. They have, indeed, had their deserved effect, and if it were possible for a man who has never entered into the state of marriage to know the instincts of a kind father to an honourable and numerous house, I may say I have done it. I do not know but my regards, in some considerations, have been more useful than those of a father, and as I wanted all that tenderness, which is the bias of inclination in men towards their own offspring, I have bad a greater command of reason when I. Was to judge of what concerned my wards, and'oon. Sequently was not prompted, by my partiality and fondness towards their persons, to trans gress against their interests.
