Identifer:

Evidence

I have read, conversed, and thought much upon the subject, and would recommend to all who are capable of conviction, an excellent Tract by my learned and ingenious friend John Ranby, Esq. entitled ""Doubts on the Abolition of the Slave Trade."" To Mr. Ranby"s ""Doubts,"" I will apply Lord Chancellor Hardwicke"s expression in praise of a Scotch Law Book, called ""Dirleton"s Doubts""; ""HIS [italics] Doubts [end italics], (said his Lordship,) are better than most people"s [italics] Certainties [end italics].""
