Royalty

,—the curse of God Almighty in his wrath to man. Where this office exists, the whole country is pale, sickly, and unfruitful. The poor luckless inhabitants miserable, melancholy, and almost mad with despair. Emaciated through hunger, spiritless through subjection, and depraved to the utmost possible, by mimicking the abandoned profligacy of the court.—See England.

Notes

There is no entry for England; the cross-reference is here perhaps for rhetorical purposes, or perhaps the original publisher elided that entry.
