To the Editors of the North Wales Gazelle. GENTLEMEN, I believe I may truly say there is not a greater advocate for the Liberty of the Press than myself, nor a more determined enemy to its liceittioiqitei. and entertaining these sen- iiiiii-iits, I (iiiiik the Editors of a certain London Paper* have, in my mind, been guilty of a libel upon the Body Corporate of the City of London. In the paper I allude to of the Ist itist. after nolicin that our gra- cious Sovereign with his revered family, and tiie Lords and Commons in Parliament assem- bled. had attended at different places of divine worship the preceding day, we are then gravely told thai" The Right Hon. the Lord Mayor and Sheriff's, went in State, accompanied by several Aldermen and the Recorder, from the Mansion House to St. Paul's Cathedral, where they heard Divine Service, and afterwards proceeded back to the Mansion House, where they partook of an Elegant Dinner, provided for the occasion"—the FAST DA Y III—Gen- tlemen, it is impossible that this statement can he correct.—What, the City of London, feinarkable for its abstemiousness (preferring ou a lale memorable oecasioa cold beet to Traveller. I partake of an elegant dinner on a FAST DaY! The thing «is incredible, particularly #hen ire recollect tome late observations made by Hie Livery, of the necessity of re- trenchingHseless expenditures. That this is a Libel upon the Body Corporate of the first City in the world, remarkable for theexcel- lence of its examples, I think there can be no doubt. They, good souls were, I am sure, on that solemn day, set apart for prayer aud humiliation, cloathed in sack cloth and ashes for the sins of the nation and Heir own. No temptation held out by Mr. Birch could in- duce them to taste either his turtle or venison. Soup meagre alone would on such a day be their only humble fare. But as some people in the country are apt to be sceptical, and may be induced to believe the paragraph 1 allude to, 1 must humbly request your insertion of this letter, in order to rescue that independent and immaculate Body from unmerited slander. I am, Gents. Your's &e. A CONSTANT READER. Carnarvon, 12th March, 1810.
