الصفحة 250 - There is one very unpleasing remark which every one who attends to the subject of prices will be induced to make, that the labouring classes, especially those engaged in agriculture, were better provided with the means of subsistence in the reign of Edward 3rd, or of Henry 6th, than they are at present.
الصفحة 24 - ... heads, and but for which they might have earned their honest bread and lived in peace— how many died in soul, and had no chance of life— how many who could scarcely go astray, be they vicious as they would, turned haughtily from the crushed and stricken wretch who could scarce do otherwise, and who would have been a greater wonder had he or she done well, than even they, had they done ill— how much injustice, and misery, and wrong, there was, and yet how the world rolled on from year to...
