Página 511 - No man ever doubted that the commodity of tea could bear an imposition of threepence. But no commodity will bear threepence, or will bear a penny, when the general feelings of men are irritated, and two millions of people are resolved not to pay.

Would twenty shillings have ruined Mr. Hampden's fortune ? No ! but the payment...
