It has this advantage, that it leaves unimpaired the institutions, the opinions, and the feelings that have hitherto kept the community together ; and that as its fault is meddling too little, it may be gradually remedied by interfering when urgently required. An opposite plan, if it fail, fails entirely ; it has destroyed everything that could supply its place,...
4 페이지 - ... a business, that it leaves room for nothing else, — for I have no hour in the day that I can call my own. At this moment, while I am writing, there are a dozen of people talking around me : it is now twelve o'clock, and they have been coming and going in parties ever since seven in the morning, when I began this letter.
