/« Mr. Fenno,
■rt Mr. Dallas mult pardon the abuse, as he calls it,
—• of I ennfylvanienfis, as it was engendered by liw
to neglect of what he himfelf acknowledges to be hi,
ile In your paper of 21 (I ind. he was charged wiih
fs, having omitted in tiie llatement of the law the word '
f e -within, by a correspondent, who said that he had
,v, iatisfied himfelfj on examination of the cafe as listed,
c> that it was not Jet forth <witf> accuracy am/jhat the
■word within was omitted.
Here wa» the charge di'eftly made. If Mr,
a D. thought it his duty, as he fay, lie does, to re
m lieve the public mind from the effett, of a oiifre
f. prcfenrttion relating to any official tranfitfioii,
d why did he not immediately do his duty and thtic re.
a lieve the public mind, before hi_s long silence cotild
j. be tonftrued into an acquiescence in the justice of
the charge ? Had he done so he would have bcea
n fccure (on that score at least) from anonymous abuse:
■ e He would not then have permitted his fellow-citi
>. Zens to be juftifiable, as they now are, in the fup
•r polition that anonymousaluse has a greater effect in
it inducing him to aifcharge his duty, than any wish
n he may have formed to relieve the public miad from
£ any misrepresentation whatever. v
i. His endeavor to lay the blame on a tranfenbtng
■r clerk will not fail, without any comment, to be
0 duly appreciated.
y Mr. D. calling it an indecent supposition that the
c judges had given their opinion on the law, without
r reading it for themselves, has much mistaken my
intention. It. was generally fOppofed by thofs
who were willir»gto apologize for the extiaordir.ary
y opinion of the judiciary, that they had.formed
r that opinion on the mutilated extradf, and l think
tCat it really i, the be ft exeufe that can be oijered
for them.
It was my sole wilh to bring these tranfafit'oas
.into the serious confii'.eration at my fellnw citiztr,
—that objedt is attained. Let those whose duty^
it is investigate the matter and lee whether (as hi<
excellency the govornor himfelf txprefied it) fair
play hag been {hewn, and if there has not, let the
blame reft on those fhouiders that are bell ei.tuicd
