Excerpt from The State of the Nation: In a Series of Letters to His Grace, the Duke of Bedford
I a dress you, my Lord, and in your person I wish to address whatever is independent and high-minded of the nobility and gentry of our land; whatever there is among them of public spirit, or even of ordinary pru dence, or of regard for posterity; since my subject is not only the present state of the nation, but to what that nation must rapidly degenerate, unless the counsels of Better times be again resorted to; and disregarded, but sound maxims 0 government he once more revived.
