To what ends [...] should our number be known, except [...] to be pressed into the fleet and the army, or transplanted like felons to the plantations abroad? And what purpose [...] to know where the kingdom is crowded, where it is thin, except we are to be driven from place to place as graziers do their cattle?
William Thornton before the House of Commons, March 30, 1753
|Fragmina verborum Titivillus colligit horum|
Quibus die mille vicibus se sarcinat ille.
quis crederet umquam?
