The character of their political institutions was determined by the fundamental laws respecting property.
Σελίδα 426 - So absolute (says he) was the authority of the crown, that the precious spark of liberty had been kindled, and was preserved, by the Puritans alone ; and it was to this sect that the English owe the whole freedom of their constitution.
