They augur misgovernment at a distance ; and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze.
第 108 頁 - ... to dive into the depths of dungeons; to plunge into the infection of hospitals; to survey the mansions of sorrow and pain; to take the gauge and dimensions of misery, depression, and contempt; to remember the forgotten, to attend to the neglected, to visit the forsaken, and to compare and collate the distresses of all men in all countries.

第 108 頁 - I cannot name this gentleman without remarking that his labours and writings have done much to open the eyes and hearts of mankind.
