And as the strictest
Truth enables Your Memorialist to declare, that this Plan, from
its yearly Improvement, has more than answered Your Lordships
most sanguine Wishes, it having besides the many Nusances and
Disorders it hath removed been the absolute Means of apprehending
and detecting Ten Highway men out of Eleven which have
infested the Neighbourhood of London within these twelve Months.
Your Memorialist therefore hopes that the usual Sum of
Four hundred Pounds will be immediately directed to be paid to
Your Memorialist for the above Purposes for the Services of the
ensuing Year.
