That it is doubted by single cavillers can very little weaken the general evidence, and some who deny it with their tongues, confess it by their fears.
Сторінка 58 - For why ? because the good old rule Sufficeth them, — the simple plan, That they should take, who have the power, And they should keep, who can.
