The advantage of my plan would be, that it pledges us to no English Reform
which an, 'nan objects to.--Mr. BROUGHAM's Letter to a Scotch Friend, 28th
April, 1810.

I wish thirty rotten boroughs to be disfranchised; freeholders and copyholders to
vote in counties, and taxed householders in boroughs ; but I do not mean the country
shall have an annual parliament.--Mr. BRAND, in the House of Commons, May
21, 1810.

Annual parliaments are the ancient constitution of England, and the birth-right of
Englishmen.--The Deputies of the petitioning counties, cities, and towns, in
their memorial of 1780.

Representation ought to be co-extensive with taration in support of the Poor, the
Church, and the State, and equally distributed; und parliament brought back to a
constitutional duration.--SIR FRANCIS BURDETT, in the House of Commons,
June 15, 1809.

LONDON:

PRINTED BY J. MÓCREERY, BLACK-HORSE-COURT.
