Excerpt from A Prize Dissertation, on the Excellence of the British ConstitutionThe Constitution of this country has long been the glory of Britons, and the envy of foreign nations. Its principles, as an enlightened writer remarks, were originally imported from the woods of Germany; but they were first formed into a regular system, and carried fully into practice in this happy island.The British Constitution has been the work of ages; has employed the labour and engrossed the attention of statesmen, philosophers and patriots; and has been establised by men of strong minds, who lived at critical periods, and who, by their wisdom, their bravery, or their sufferings, have done essential service to the cause of liberty. Not to speak of the different governments among the Anglo-Saxons, or of the more ancient inhabitants of this island, a series of important events, from the Conquest to the Revolution, was extremely favourable to English liberty: and every magnanimous nation, and improved to the best account by its patriotic leaders, who flourished at different periods.Soon after the Norman conquest, Henry the First, and his successor Stephen, to strengthen their deficient titles to the throne, passed two different charters in favour of their subjects.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
