Though the purposes of these formidable and rival political factions are well understood, and are sanctioned and encouraged by the great majority of the electors, they are, nevertheless, hostile to free institutions and the liberties of the people, and as such should be subjected to the restraints and prohibitions of law.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
