it wis formerly govera'd
by such, and also of the Bailiffs, who
ruled before the Rise, ami since the De-
cline of thai 1 ': : I appl) 'd mj self

That no certain Account could bt had

It, by Reason that t/u last
had gone off with the Records.
The Occasion of which, (if another
sensible Person has inform'd me right)
was thro' the following Transaction.
Most English Historians relate, That
Scarborough had signaliz'd its Loyalty
to King James II. in a very high de-
gree, by a most eloquent * Address to
that unhappy Prince, upon his Maje-
sty's ] (eclaration for Liberty of Const
And so zealous was the Mayor, that
he order' d the Curate of St. Mary's to
read it in the Desk, or Pulpit ; which
the conscientious Divine refusing to
do, that Magistrate basely struck the
Minister, or Caned him, even in the
Place of Divine Worship. Such unpa-
rallel'd Usage was resented by many ;
and particularly by a Captain of the
Army, who not long after sent for the
Mayor to the Old Bowling Green : Put
the Magistrate slighting the M
as impertinent from a military Offi-
cer, the Captain made no more ado,
but by a File of Musketeers fore'd him
to come, and then oblig'd him to un-
dergo Sancho Pancho's rude Discipline
of being Toss'd in a Blanket. Soon af-
ter the exasperated Mayor took Post
for London, in order to make his Com-
plaint to the King ; and the Captain
rode another Way, to avert the dread-
ful Punishment intended against him
by his highly affronted Adversary. But

King abdicating his throne, a Period
was put to the Officers Fear ; and the
