As thefe emoluments conftitute the principal part of the income of the Memorialifts, thefe defalcations, though inconfiderable in themlclves, rcducc their fituations to fo low a ftandard, as not only to become a very inadequate compenfation for their long and faithful fervices, but inl'ufficient for the fupport of themfelves and families. 2nd.
