Seite 173 - An Act for the further Limitation of the Crown, and better securing the Rights and Liberties of the Subject...
Seite 198 - Whatever each man can separately do, without trespassing upon others, he has a right to do for himself; and he has a right to a fair portion of all which society, with all its combinations of skill and force, can do in his favour.
