But I should choose to know him to be totally unable to appear on the public stage before I agree to any offer of that kind, lest it should be wrongly construed a fear of him ; and indeed his political conduct the last winter was so abandoned that he must, in the eyes of the dispassionate, have totally undone all the merit of his former conduct.

עמוד ccxvi - a liberty for every one to do what he lists, to live as he pleases, and not to be tied by any laws"; but freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society and made by the legislative power erected in it...
עמוד clxxxix - A series of inconsistent measures had alienated the colonies from their duty as subjects and from their natural affection to their common country. When Mr. Grenville was placed at the head of the treasury, he felt the impossibility of Great Britain's supporting such an establishment as her former successes...

In the mean time, the practice gains ground ; the Court of King's Bench becomes a court of equity ; and the Judge, instead...
עמוד xxxi - all national reflections : the King's subjects were one people ; whoever divided them was guilty of sedition. His Majesty's complaint was well-founded ; it was just ; it was necessary. The author did not deserve to be ranked among the human species ; he was the blasphemer of his God, and the libeller of his King.
עמוד xxvii - This cardinal, Though from an humble stock, undoubtedly Was fashion'd to much honour. From his cradle He was a scholar, and a ripe and good one ; Exceeding wise, fair spoken, and persuading : Lofty and sour to them that loved him not ; But, to those men that sought him, sweet as summer...
עמוד clxvii - Though I use the terms of art, do not injure me so much as to suspect I am a lawyer. — I had as lief be a Scotchman.
