“My Lord,

“I should have esteemed it a very great honour to have been recommended by your Lordship to his Majesty as a Deputy Lieutenant of the county, had I not been one of those, whom the operation of the test laws excludes from all offices of trust under government. I well know that if others thought with the same liberality as your Lordship, these disabilities would be removed; but whilst they remain, I think it better that those affected by them should implicitly submit to them, rather than by an occasional conformity to, or an open disregard of them, invalidate the reasons for their repeal.

“With the deepest sense of this mark of your Lordship’s confidence, I remain,

“My Lord,
“Your Lordship’s most obliged
“And most faithful servant,
W. Roscoe.”
