Стр. 411 - I have said) put up with almost any thing that did not touch national faith and national honour, rather than let slip the furies of war, the leash of which we hold in our hands — not knowing whom they may reach, or how far their ravages may be carried. Such is the love of peace which the British Government acknowledges ; and such the necessity for peace which the circumstances of the world inculcate.
Стр. 201 - That this court cannot refrain from adverting to an opinion strongly insisted on by some, that the Bank has only to reduce its issues to obtain a favourable turn in the exchanges, and a consequent influx of the precious metals : the court conceives it to be its duty to declare, that it is unable to discover any solid foundation for such a sentiment.

Стр. 411 - The consequence of letting loose the passions at present chained and confined, would be to produce a scene of desolation which no man can contemplate without horror; and I should not sleep easy on my couch, if I were conscious that I had contributed to precipitate it by a single moment...
Стр. 354 - ... circumstances can an honest man endeavour to keep his country upon a line with the progress of political knowledge, and to adapt its course to the varying circumstances of the world.
