Asheton Smith, Thomas
Pollen, John, Sir
After the fair was over, yesterday, I came down from the Hill (3 miles) to this town of ANDOVER; which has within the last 20 days, been more talked of, in other parts of the kingdom, than it ever was before from the creation of the world to the beginning of those 20 days. The THOMAS ASHETON SMITHS and the SIR JOHN POLLENS, famous as they have been under the banners of the Old Navy Purser, George Rose, and his successors, have never, even since the death of poor TURNER, been half so famous, they and this CORPORATION, whom they represent, as they have been since the MEETING which they held here, which ended in their defeat and confusion, pointing them out as worthy of that appellation of 'POOR DEVILS,' which POLLEN thought proper to give to those labourers, without whose toil his estate would not be worth a single farthing.
