Excerpt from Defence of the Whigs
The Whig party succeeded - not ln preserving their ascendancy 111 the councils of the nation - but m stamp ing their principles upon the British Constitution. Through many reverses and mischances they won success. 4 Often bafﬂed and turned back, always mis represented or misunderstood, frequently derided and reviled, and but Seldom ln the actual administration of affairs - still the progress of their principles was Ou ward, and they had the satisfaction to see the cause of htiman liberty gradually intrenching itself behind. The bul'warks they had erected. Even to witness this consummation at the moments when party rage and the fanaticism Of political zeal excluded them from all share in the management of government - 2a noble homage to the wisdom and fidelity of their labors!
