Letter from David Woodburn to Dr Traill, About the Charges Against Him

Author(s): Woodburn, David

Text

Gentlemen


I am extremely unhappy to find, that
any part of my Conduct, should be thought to deserve
the Sentence past by you on Satuday the 6th Currt.
I humbly apprehend that upon reviewing your
Sentence, you will be of opinion that it is too rigorous,
even ſuppoſing the facts alledged against me, to have
been fully proved. The Effect of your Decision must
be destrutive to my Character and fatal to my
Interest, as I would wish therefore to have relief from
your Justice and Humanity, rather than to ſeek
Redreſs elsewhere, I muſt earnestly intreat that
you would review and alter your Sentence, and
if I shall be alowed to continue a Member of
this University, I am determined to purſue my
Studies with the utmost Aſsiduity, and to behave
with the greatest Respect to every Member
of this Society.
