Excerpt from book:
left them at liberty to treat me like one that put a value upon their penetration nt the expense of my own." The first deteetion of our anthor is said to have been owing to the industry of the Earl of Nottingham, one of the secretaries of state. When the anthor's name was known, people were at no loss to decipher his ohject; and those who had committed themselves by lannching forth in his praises were stung with madness at their own folly. It was at once resolved by the party in power to crush De Foe by a state prosecution. In the height of the storm, our anthor sought concealment; when a proclamation was issued by the government, offering £50 for the discovery of his retreat, and advertised in "The London Gazette," for January 10, 170-3. It was as follows: — " Whereas, Daniel De Foe, alias De Fooc, is charged with writing a scandalous and seditious pamphlet, entitled, ' The Shortest Way with the Dissenters.' He is a middle-sized, spare man, about forty years old; of a brown complexion, and dark brown colored hair, but wears a wig; a hook nose, a sharp chin, gray eyes, and a large mole near his mouth: was born in London, and for many years was a hose-factor in Freeman's Yard, Cornhill: and now is owner of the brick and pantile works, near Tilbury Fort, in Essex : whoever shall discover the said Daniel De Foe to one of her Majesty's principal secretaries of state, or any of her Majesty's justices of peace, so he may be apprehended, shall have a reward of £jO, which her Majesty has ordered immediately to be paid upon such discovery." In the House of Commons, it was resolved that the book "be burnt by the hands of the common hangman in Palace Yard." The printer of the work and the bookseller being taken into custody, De Foe issued forth from his retirement, to brave the storm, ...
