the_o public_a good_a be_v still_o for_o get_v more_o for_o his_o own_o particular_a and_o private_a advantage_n so_o that_o upon_o the_o whole_a matter_n i_o find_v that_o some_o have_v money_n but_o no_o skill_n other_o have_v skill_n but_o no_o money_n some_o again_o have_v both_o skill_n and_o money_n which_o be_v very_o rare_a but_o yet_o want_v that_o generous_a and_o public_a spirit_n that_o be_v necessary_a in_o this_o case_n and_o wherever_o i_o find_v a_o person_n who_o be_v well_o dispose_v in_o the_o general_n and_o well_o qualify_v in_o other_o respect_n yet_o he_o either_o want_v courage_n to_o venture_v so_o great_a a_o sum_n of_o money_n or_o judgement_n to_o understand_v the_o present_a constitution_n of_o the_o company_n and_o how_o to_o amend_v they_o for_o the_o public_a

of_o law_n and_o also_o of_o his_o frank_a and_o generous_a disposition_n for_o the_o public_a good_a and_o that_o he_o be_v by_o no_o mean_n of_o a_o covetous_a or_o grasp_a temper_n but_o take_v

that_o he_o be_v the_o fit_a person_n i_o know_v to_o set_v the_o wheel_n a_o go_v with_o we_o in_o cardiganshire_n and_o i_o humble_o conceive_v your_o honour_n will_v all_o be_v of_o the_o same_o
