    You will force them? He has often been quoted, like Scripture, for and against the 1774. book doctrine. The general declaration in the Letter goes to the whole of it. In England we cried out for new taxes on America, whilst they cried out that they were nearly crushed with those which the war and their own grants had brought upon them. The following passage, which occurs later in the same work, will further illustrate this way of working, combined with more periodic structure: And is then example nothing?

    It is said, I know, that truth is one; but to this I cannot subscribe, for it appears to me truth is many. The object of the Act is gone already; and all you suffer April 14 the purging the Statute-book of the opprobrium of an empty, absurd, and false recital. To think of reducing all mankind to the same insipid level, seemed to him the same absurdity as to destroy the inequalities of surface in a country for the benefit of agriculture and commerce. He thought that the wants and happiness of man were not to be provided for as we provide for those of a herd of cattle, merely by attending to their physical necessities.

    Hazlitt, who has left two contradictory estimates of Burke, is esq. on American taxation most conspicuous exception: and he, in another work, has admitted the futility of the attempt. It ought to be utterly incurable in the body as it now stands constituted. Let him who thinks he can, give the reverse side with equal force, beauty, and clearness. I am sure our heads must turn and our stomachs nauseate with them. He was therefore right in saying, that it is no objection to an institution, that it is founded on prejudice, but the contrary, if that principle is natural and right: that is, if it arises from those circumstances which are properly subjects of feeling and association, not from any defect or perversion of the understanding in those things which fall properly under its jurisdiction.

Burke has great information, and great command of language; though in my opinion it has not in every respect the highest elegance.

I will endeavour to state what this piece is; the purpose for which I take it to have been written; and the effects supposing it should Speech of Edmund Burke any effect at all it must necessarily produce. 1774. book feelings of the colonies were formerly the feelings of Great Britain.

This folly has thrown open folding-doors to contraband; and will be the means of giving the profits of the trade of your Colonies to every nation but yourselves. He writes, for instance, of Parliaments: Nothing is more beautiful in the theory of Parliaments, than that principle of renovation and union of permanence 1774.

book change, that are happily mixed in their constitution: Speech of Edmund Burke in all our changes we are never wholly old or wholly new: that there are enough of the old to preserve unbroken the traditionary chain of the maxims and policy of our ancestors, and the law and custom of parliament; and enough of the new to invigorate us, and bring us to our true character, by being taken from the mass of the people: and the whole, though mostly composed of the old members, have, notwithstanding, a new character, and may have the advantage of change without the imputation of inconstancy.

The apparent intention of this author is to draw the most aggravated, hideous, and deformed picture of the [Page 5] state of this country, which his querulous eloquence, aided by the arbitrary dominion he assumes over fact, is capable of exhibiting.

Those who wish to understand the nature and importance of his multifarious labours should make the acquaintance of his writings in the mass, and master them singly in detail.

Reverse calf, with a distinctive suede-like texture, is occasionally used. Burke was trained as a lawyer at Trinity College, Dublin and thereafter moved to London. But his greatest influence was on social commentators like Thomas Carlyle and John Ruskinwho invoked Burke's arguments to condemn the destructive rise of capitalist industrialism.

But these are themselves historical. The experiment of a ministry headed by a favourite was a conspicuous failure: but the succeeding administrations were an apprenticeship in kingcraft, and with Lord North as an instrument, the King appears, if not a finished master, at least as something better than a bungler.

If this dignity, which is to stand in the place of just policy and common sense, had been consulted, there was a time for preserving it, and for reconciling it with any concession. The following passage from the First Letter on a Regicide Peace is one of the most remarkable examples of the employment of this effect: Even when men are willing, as sometimes they are, to barter blood for lucre, to hazard their safety for the gratification of their avarice, the passion which animates them to that sort of conflict, like all short-sighted passions, must see its objects distinct and near at hand.

His best efforts, if we except his advocacy of the cause of American liberty, are outside the policy of his party.

Your danger was indeed great. These virtuous men, such I am warranted by public opinion to call them, were resolved rather to endure every thing, than co-operate in that design. His powerful influence was of a personal nature, and he despised Whiggism. In the manner of them, as in that of Pindar, there is no harbour for mediocrity: you must either succeed or fail.

The reader must meet his author half-way; he must contribute something more than a bare receptivity. This is a truth which, I believe, admits little dispute, having been established by the uniform experience of all ages.

The Honourable Gentleman remembers, that about five years ago as great disturbances as the present prevailed in America on account of the new taxes.
