Strana 265 - Do you want a criminal, my lords ? When was there so much iniquity ever laid to the charge of any one ? — No, my lords, you must not look to punish any other such delinquent from India.
Strana 116 - We are all born in subjection, all born equally, high and low, governors and governed, in subjection to one great, immutable, preexistent law, prior to all our devices, and prior to all our contrivances, paramount to all our ideas, and all our sensations, antecedent to our very existence, by which we are knit and connected in the eternal frame of the universe, out of which we cannot stir.

Strana 216 - That the punishments, inflicted upon the ryotts both of Rungpore and Dinagepore for non-payment, were in many instances of such a nature, that I would rather wish to draw a veil over them, than shock your feelings by the detail. But that however disagreeable the task may be to myself, it is absolutely necessary for the sake of justice, humanity, and the honor of government, that they should be exposed, to be prevented in future.
Strana 609 - Witnesses. The practice is to swear the witnesses in open house, and then examine them there : or a committee may be named, who shall examine them in committee, either on interrogatories agreed on in the house, or such as the committee in their discretion shall demand.
Strana 116 - Here he has declared his opinion that he is a despotic prince; that he is to use arbitrary power; and, of course, all his acts are covered with that shield. "I know," says he, "the constitution of Asia only from its practice " Will your lordships submit to hear the corrupt practices of mankind made the principles of government?
