"I need hardly say the question I raise is not whether you have misrepresented me, for, were I disposed to anything so weak, the whole internal evidence...
Сторінка 102 - It remains indeed their business, now and ever, to take honour and duty for their guides, and not the mere demand or purpose of the passing hour ; but honour and duty themselves require their loyal servant to take account of the state of facts in which he is to work, and, while ever...
