Serious considerations on the salutary design of the Act of Parliament for a regular, uniform register of the parish-poor : in all the parishes within the Bills of Mortality. Pointing out the Humanity and Utility which will attend the due Execution Thereof:-The Inefficacy of past Attempts relating to such Infants-The Necessity of sending them to nurse at a proper Distance in the Country:-The pecuniary Value of a Life to the Community:-The Duty of repairing as much as possible the Loss created by War:-And the Importance of increasing our Numbers at Home and Abroad, as the truest Means of supporting our Independency as a Nation. To which are added, some thoughts on the usefulness of ventilation; the pernicious Effects of bad Air, narrow Streets, and ruined Houses; the Advantages of Cleanliness and decent Cloathing in Workhouses, and the honorable Esteem in which Parish-Officers ought to be held, when they discharge their Duty. In two letters addressed to a churchwarden
