AND

CONSTITUTION,

FROM THE REIGN OF HENRY VII.

TO THE PRESENT TIME.

BY LORD JOHN RUSSELL.

Qualis frugifero quercus sublimis in agro,
Exuvias veteres populi, sacrataque gestans
Dona ducum; nec jam validis radicibus hærens,
Pondere fixa suo est :
At quamvis primo nutet casura sub Euro
Tot circum silvæ firmo se robore tollant,
Sola tamen colitur.

LUCAN.
