In other countries, the people, more simple and of a less mercurial cast, judge of an ill principle in government only by an actual grievance.

Página 271 - The clouds at my call have poured their waters, and the Nile has overflowed at my command. I have restrained the rage of the Dog-star, and mitigated the fervours of the Crab.
