Strana xii - Signed, sealed, published, and declared, by the said Thomas Coutts, the testator, as and for his last will and testament, in the presence of us, who, in his presence, at his request, and in the presence of each other, have hereunto subscribed our names as witnesses, . .- .
Strana 312 - I was acting upon the impulse of private feelings, rather than upon a dispassionate consideration of the constitutional relation between a representative and his constituents. I will not seek to defend the resolution to which I came by arguments drawn from the peculiar character of the Academic body, or from the special nature of the trust confided to its Members. Still less will I contend that my example ought to be followed by others to whom may be offered the same painful alternative of disregarding...
Strana 344 - I do declare, that I do not believe that the Pope of Rome, or any other foreign prince, prelate, person, state, or potentate, hath or ought to have any temporal or civil jurisdiction, power, superiority or pre-eminence, directly or indirectly, within this realm.
Strana 348 - In the former interview it had been represented that, after much conversation twice with his Ministers or such as had come down, he had said, ' Go on;' and upon the latter of those two occasions, after many hours' fatigue, and exhausted by the fatigue of conversation, he had said, ' Go on.' He now produced two papers which he represented as copies of what he had written to them, in which he assents to their proceeding and going on with the bill, adding certainly in each, as he read them, very strong...
Strana 256 - ... complaints, remonstrances, and declarations, and other addresses to the king, or to both or either Houses of Parliament, for alteration of matters established by law...
Strana 148 - ... better to leave things as they are than to risk any change. But will things remain as they are? Certainly not. They are bad ; they must get worse ; and I see no possible means of improving them but by depriving the demagogues of the power of directing the people ; and by taking Messrs. O'Connell, Shell, and the rest of them from the Association, and placing them in the House of Commons, this desirable object would be at once accomplished.
Strana 100 - Ireland ; with a view to such a final and conciliating adjustment as may be conducive to the peace and strength of the United Kingdom ; to the stability of the Protestant Establishment ; and to the general satisfaction and concord of all classes of His Majesty's subjects.
Strana 308 - Commons in the last discussion by the very smallest majority — 272 to 266. It had been negatived in the House of Lords by a majority of 40. The King was hostile, the Church was hostile, a majority probably of the people of Great Britain was hostile, to concession.
Strana 313 - Majesty's government, that there is less of evil and less of danger, under the existing circumstances of the country, in the attempt to make some satisfactory adjustment of the Catholic question, than in any other course which we can suggest. " In the offer of my advice to his Majesty, as one of his confidential and responsible servants, I have been compelled to exclude every consideration but that of the interests and necessities of the country. No sooner, however, had I fulfilled the obligations...
Strana 309 - His Majesty recommends that, when this essential object shall have been accomplished, you should take into your deliberate consideration the whole condition of Ireland, and that you should review the laws which impose Civil disabilities on his Majesty's Roman Catholic subjects.
