Page 11 - Now, what shall we say of these rich citizens of London? What shall I say of them? Shall I call them proud men of London, malicious men of London, merciless men of London ? No, no! I may not say so; they will be offended with me then. Yet must I speak. For is there not reigning in London as much pride, as much covetousness, as much cruelty, as much oppression, as much superstition, as was in Nebo ? Yes, I think, and much more too. Therefore, I say, Repent, O London! repent, repent!
Page 20 - England, I speak it to thy shame. Is there never a nobleman to be a Lord President, but it must be a prelate ? Is there never a wise man in the realm to be a Comptroller of the Mint? I speak it to your shame, I speak it to your shame.
