From William Cowper's Letters: A Selection, edited by E. V. Lucas
"God grant that we may have no revolution here, but unless we have reform, we certainly shall. Depend upon it, my dear, the hour is come when power founded in patronage and corrupt majorities must govern this land no longer."
From a letter to Lady Hesketh, dated Dec. 1, 1792
