Excerpt from An Appeal to the King's Most Excellent Majesty, and to the British Nation
The period having arrived, when it has become a duty incumbent upon me to vindicate my character from the disgrace and obloquy, which inevitable attaches to that of an individual removed from the head of a public office of great trust and responsibility, I shall not shrink from the task; however irksome and painful its execution may be to myself, and however distressing and agonising the result of my labors may, and no doubt will prove to several individual whose conduct I have necessarily animadverted upon, in the progress of my narrative.
Such of that number, who composed, either my official equals, or my official inferiors, I consider too despicable to waste another syllable upon them, or upon their conduct. I shall consequently now leave those individuals to their own meditations, to the reflections of the public, and to the process of the Law.
The Earl of Liverpool, one of that number, who composed my former official superiors, has, since this pamphet was put to press, been called into the presence of his Maker - the just, all-wise, and omnipotent Judge of the Universe;
"There is no shuffling, there the action lies
In it's true nature; and we ourselves compelled,
Even to the teeth and forehead of our faults,
To give in evidence." - Hamlet.
I shall therefore abstain from making any further remarks upon his Lordship's conduct towards me; but merely express my hope, that God above will render unto him more Justice in Heaven than he did unto me upon Earth.
