The History Of Martin - Continued

How Jack, having got rid of the old landlord, set up another to his
mind, quarrelled with Martin, and turned him out of doors. How he
pillaged all his shops, and abolished his whole dispensatory. How
the new landlord {164a} laid about him, mauled Peter, worried
Martin, and made the whole neighbourhood tremble. How Jack's
friends fell out among themselves, split into a thousand parties,
turned all things topsy-turvy, till everybody grew weary of them;
and at last, the blustering landlord dying, Jack was kicked out of
doors, a new landlord {164b} brought in, and Martin re-established.
How this new landlord let Martin do what he pleased, and Martin
agreed to everything his pious landlord desired, provided Jack might
be kept low. Of several efforts Jack made to raise up his head, but
all in vain; till at last the landlord died, and was succeeded by
one {164c} who was a great friend to Peter, who, to humble Martin,
gave Jack some liberty. How Martin grew enraged at this, called in
a foreigner {164d} and turned out the landlord; in which Jack
concurred with Martin, because this landlord was entirely devoted to
Peter, into whose arms he threw himself, and left his country. How
the new landlord secured Martin in the full possession of his former
rights, but would not allow him to destroy Jack, who had always been
his friend. How Jack got up his head in the North, and put himself
in possession of a whole canton, to the great discontent of Martin,
who finding also that some of Jack's friends were allowed to live
and get their bread in the south parts of the country, grew highly
discontented with the new landlord he had called in to his
assistance. How this landlord kept Martin in order, upon which he
fell into a raging fever, and swore he would hang himself or join in
with Peter, unless Jack's children were all turned out to starve.
Of several attempts to cure Martin, and make peace between him and
Jack, that they might unite against Peter; but all made ineffectual
by the great address of a number of Peter's friends, that herded
among Martin's, and appeared the most zealous for his interest. How
Martin, getting abroad in this mad fit, looked so like Peter in his
air and dress, and talked so like him, that many of the neighbours
could not distinguish the one from the other; especially when Martin
went up and down strutting in Peter's armour, which he had borrowed
to fight Jack {165a}. What remedies were used to cure Martin's
distemper . . .

Here the author being seized with a fit of dulness, to which he is
very subject, after having read a poetical epistle addressed to . .
. it entirely composed his senses, so that he has not writ a line
since.

N.B.--Some things that follow after this are not in the MS., but
seem to have been written since, to fill up the place of what was
not thought convenient then to print.

The stateof war, natural to all creatures. War is an attempt to take byviolence from others a part of what they have and we want. Everyman, fully sensible of his own merit, and finding it not dulyregarded by others, has a natural right to take from them all thathe thinks due to himself; and every
