Excerpt from A Letter, Addressed to the Right Hon. Thomas Spring Rice, M. P. &C. &C. &C: On the Means of Reconciling Parliamentary Reform, to the Interests and Opinions of the Different Orders of the CommunityMy dear Sir,In addressing you upon "Parliamentary Reform," I am bound to find a sufficient excuse for offering my theoretical opinions concerning a subject, so laboriously debated by the most able members of the legislature; and which at this present moment occasions such fierce and ardent contests in every part of the kingdom. - I venture to proffer unasked council for the following reasons. - As a bystander, without a seat in the house of commons, or a place on the hustings, it does appear to me, that the advocates, as well as the opponents of the bill, have unadvisedly neglected the most important elements of moral improvement, as well as of English freedom. In the heat of political discussion, - both parties acting as partizans, - and, with respect be it said, - both swayed by heat and party spirit, - have perhaps equally erred by rejecting all attempts at mutual conciliation, and also by abandoning the paths through which we may best effect a satisfactory reform; and if the plan lately brought before Parliament be calmly and dispassionately examined, it may become dubious, whether, in its present shape, the ministerial bill be a boon to the community. In order, therefore, to embody the points, which, as I apprehend, need deep and sober consideration, I have sketched out the draft of the bill appended to this letter.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
