Halaman 242 - These are the heroes that despise the Dutch And rail at new-come foreigners so much ; Forgetting that themselves are all derived From the most scoundrel race that ever lived...
Halaman 244 - The royal refugee our breed restores, With foreign courtiers, and with foreign whores : And carefully repeopled us again, Throughout his lazy, long, lascivious reign, With such a blest and true-born English fry, As much illustrates our nobility.
Halaman 285 - England and erect a new colony, and give them great privileges, grants, and suitable powers, keep them under protection, and defend them against all invaders, and receive no taxes or revenue from them. This was the cruelty of the Church of England; fatal lenity!
Halaman 298 - If the gallows instead of the Counter, and the galleys instead of the fines, were the reward of going to a conventicle, to preach or hear, there would not be so many sufferers.
Halaman 288 - The late reign is too fresh in the memory of all the world to need a comment ; how under pretence of joining with the church in redressing some grievances, they pushed things to that extremity, in conjunction with some mistaken gentlemen, as to depose the late king, as if the grievance of the nation could not have been redressed but by the absolute ruin of the prince : here is an instance of their temper, their peace and charity.

Halaman 236 - He needs no standing army government; He always rules us by our own consent; His laws are easy, and his gentle sway Makes it exceeding pleasant to obey.
Halaman 251 - 11 starve themselves and families. An Englishman will fairly drink as much As will maintain two families of Dutch : Subjecting all their labour to their pots ; The greatest artists are the greatest sots. The country poor do by example live ; The gentry lead them, and the clergy drive : What may we not from such examples hope ? The landlord is their god, the priest their pope. A drunken clergy and a swearing bench Has given the Reformation such a drench, As wise men think there is some cause to doubt...
Halaman 292 - Enemy, if they had not made him so; he was quiet, in peace, and no way disturb'd, or encroach'd upon us, and we know no reason we had to quarrel with him. But further, We make no question but we are able to deal with this common Enemy without their help; but why must we unite with them because of the Enemy, will they go over to the Enemy, if we do not prevent it by a union with them — We are very well contented they...
