1. Treasury &c will
they not give effect
to the laws except
where prosecution &c
not from heroic virtue?
2. nor where reward
is offered but no
having had no effect?
The Treasury, the Kings Bench or the Attorney
General are they prepared to say the one that they will not
institute was sent the other that they will not int

that the prosecutor is exposed to the operation of any
motive other than such as comes under the operation

Can the business of
justice be carried
on by such motives?

or an Attorney General

slightest warrant for
supposing that the
business of justice can
be carried on then by
prosecutions so produced.
