Forasmuch therefore as persons of this rank are seldom men of genius or capacity, I think it would • be very proper, that some man of good sense and (sound judgment should preside over these public scries, who should permit none to lift up their voices ' in our streets, that have not tunable throats, and
are not only able to overcome the noise of the crowd, and the rattling of coaches, but also to vend their respective merchandises in apt phrases, and in the most distinct and agreeable sounds. I do there· fore humbly recommend myself as a person rightly o qualified for this post ; and if I meet with fitting
encouragement, shall communicate some other • projects, which I have by me, that may no less • conduce to the emolument of the public.
