SIR, Whitby, 1734.

T 1 jrou have Leisure to consult the
Writings of Mr. Samuel Jones, Au-
thor of Will T BY, a Poem, $c. you
might find several Things, thro' the
flowing Pen of that ingenious Gentle-
man, who has often employ'd himself
upon the most exalted Subjects : He
has shown the Virtues and Nature of
the Waters, the Wholesomeness of the
Air, and the Beauty of the Piers ; af-
fording the sweetest view to the Ocean,
which abounds with the finest Pish ;
You have given fome Account of the
Town in your well-compiled History
of York, Pag. 253, 8ge. with a remark-
able Relation, how a p tnpla-
Hermit was barbarously mur-
der'd ; and the Penance enjoin'd for
it, which yet continues every
to be perform'd by the Sua 1
of those cruel Homicides. I will only

Saturday. South East from the

Chinch, at a little Distance, is the de-
lightful Seat of Hugh Cholmeley, Esq ;
(whose Ancestors I have so lately com-
memorated in my first Letter from this
Place) which is S. W. of the Abbe)-.

The Church stands between the Ab-
bey, and the Mouth of the River, from
the Town : There is both a Pout and
a Horse-way up the Hill ; the former
consists of above 165 Steps from the
End of the Town to the Church- Yard-
Gate. There is a Chapel of Ease, on
the North Side of the River, in which
Prayers are read twice every Day ; and
sometimes. Sermons are preaeh'd there-
in, when the Weather is so bad, that
People cannot easily ascend the Hill to
the Church : East from which stands
a Cross, (between the Church-Yard-
Wall, and the Iron Gates in the Wall
that incloses the Abbe}-) which is a
firm stately Monument, formerly a
Market-Cross ; And the antient Vil-
lage Strenshall, to which the Church
and f Abbey once belong'd, is said
to have formerly surrounded it : But
as the learned Camden writes concern-
ing the Decay of Seadon, near Iiri.i.,
ut Locorum non minus quam Hominum
incerta est Conditio ; so Strenshall is
now no more : And Whitby, which
formerly had been inhabited by poor
Fishermen, is become at present an
opulent Town, has near 130 Ships of
So Tuns each belonging to it, and
abounds with rich and expert Mari-
ners. I shall write of the Ruins of our
stately Abbey in my next ; in the mean
