This glorious decade was ushered in by the election of the Long Parliament, and I challenge the annals of all nations, ancient or modern, to show an assembly in which sat a greater number of statesmen and patriots.

Brave as pure, fearless in the discharge of their difficult and dangerous duties, they faltered not in the performance of them-shrank not from impeaching a traitor to his country, and bringing his head to the block, even when it carried a crown. True to their consciences, as to their constituencies, they left England a heritage of honour that for long haloed her escutcheon, and even to this hour throws its covering screen over many a deed of shame.

________________________________________ Be a King? Am I not one? In name-nothing more. Ah! were I a man and in your place? What would you do? Give your island churls a taste of kingship, as we know it in France. My brother wouldnt let his subjects so beard him. Oh, its abominable! Ah, chere- for subjects your brother has a very different sort of people to deal with. In France theyre not yet come to clamouring for what they call their rights and liberties. Here in England theyve got Magna Charta into their heads-to a craze.
