עמוד 449 - If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms — never — never — never.
עמוד 450 - ... ermine, to save us from this pollution. I call upon the honor of your lordships to reverence the dignity of your ancestors and to maintain your own. I call upon the spirit and humanity of my country to vindicate the national character. I invoke the genius of the constitution. From the tapestry that adorns these walls, the immortal ancestor of this noble lord frowns with indignation at the disgrace of his country.
עמוד 447 - Those Iron Barons (for so I may call them when compared with the Silken Barons of modern days), were the Guardians of the People; yet their virtues, my Lords, were never engaged in a question of such importance as the present.

I could not have slept this night in my bed, nor reposed my head on my pillow, without giving this vent to my eternal abhorrence of such preposterous and enormous principles.
עמוד 450 - Spanish cruelty; we turn loose these savage hell-hounds against our brethren and countrymen in America, of the same language, laws, liberties and religion, endeared to us by every tie that should sanctify humanity.
עמוד 450 - I know not what idea that Lord may entertain of God and nature, but I know that such abominable principles are equally abhorrent to religion and humanity. What ! attribute the sacred sanction of God and nature to the massacres of the Indian scalping-knife, to the cannibal savage, torturing, murdering, roasting, and eating ; literally, my Lords, eating the mangled victims of his barbarous battles ! Such horrible notions shock every precept of religion, divine...
עמוד 449 - If the Ministers thus persevere in misadvising and misleading the King, I will not say that they can alienate the affections of his subjects from his crown ; but I will affirm that they will make the crown not worth his wearing. 1 will not say that the King is betrayed ; but I will pronounce that the kingdom is undone.
