It is singular enough that an article emanating from your celebrated periodical which
appeared in July 1828 should have caused me to appear before the public, the second time
I ever ventured to offer anything to the press, with an intended defense of our people
and our religion, which has since given the rise to the "Jews and Mosaic Law," which was published
7 years ago. It is not likely the reviewer ever saw my strictures; but these
repeat attacks proceeding from the organ of one of the great parties of Great Britain
proved to my satisfaction at least that the same spirit of disinclination to use
a mild term, towards us as a separate religious society, does yet prevail with the
same activity as during the ages of persecution.
