Pàgina 2 - All the penal laws of that unparalleled code of oppression, which were made after the last event, were manifestly the effects of national hatred and scorn towards a conquered people ; whom the victors delighted to trample upon, and were not at all afraid to provoke. They were not the effect of their fears but of their security. They who carried on this system, looked to the irresistible force of Great Britain for their support in their acts of power. They were quite certain, that no complaints of...
Pàgina 49 - I'd rather have been born ere man was blest With the pure dawn of Revelation's light, Yes, — rather plunge me back in Pagan night And take my chance with Socrates for bliss...
