< The Works of the Rev. Jonathan Swift‎ | Volume 19

FEBRUARY 22, 1722-3.

MR. Chetwood[1] intends to deliver in a petition to the government to day, and entreated me to speak to your grace before he delivered it; which not having an opportunity to do, I make bold to enclose this letter, which your grace may please to read; and is the substance of what he desired me to say. I am, with the greatest respect, my lord,

Your grace's most dutiful

and most humble servant,

  1. Knightly Chetwood, esq., who had very good pretensions to an English peerage; for which he presented several memorials; but to no purpose.
