Seite 75 - Under the same secret and malign influence, which, through each successive administration, has defeated every good, and suggested every bad, intention, the majority of the House of Commons have deprived your people of their dearest rights. They have done a deed more ruinous in its consequences than the levying of ship-money by Charles the First, or the dispensing power assumed by James the Second.
