Opposition

,—a set of men leagues to thwart the measures of the reigning minister; contriving false standards of popular freedom to the nation, and then deceiving them; pretending to sacrifice their interest to the People’s good, but in fact sacrificing nothing but principles and veracity. The nation ought, in golden letters, to place before their eyes the fable of the lark and her young ones.
