Сторінка 23 - I do not believe there is force at the disposal of the Horse Guards sufficient to keep the peace of the province ; and, when we consider that all the improvements have been effected at the expense of the tenant, it is perfectly right that this tenant-right should exist : his money has been laid out on the faith of compensation in that shape.
