The reader, if he knows any thing about human nature, will perceive, that, a man with such views would not become disaffected, because disappointed- provided he was fairly dealt with: disaffection, lukewarmness, treachery and opposition are the consequences upon those, who think their merits greater, and claims stronger than those of any one else.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
