1822 July 18
Constitut. Code Rationale

9 (a.)
1. Evil 6. Evil by pretence
for depredation. Principal
Exemplifications.
Monarch from lower title,
raised to King. To
a King belong Palace,
throne, crown, sceptre:
to all, splendor necessary:
ex. gr. gold and expensive
stones.
2. By the new title to respect,
appetite for more,
produced by the same
causes, is excited.
Admitted into fraternity
of Old Kings, the new
must equal them in
splendor.
3. To rival the ox, the
frogs burst themselves:
here they are burst by
the overgrown frog.
4. Shewn here how deplorably
judgment may
be debilitated by delusion
and prejudice.
Always as primarily
necessary is the Great
Baby's Instrument of
corruptive and delusive
prejudice spoken
of. Worse than useless,
it is spoken of as more
valuable than the good,
on pretence of securing
which it is kept up.
Unprovable, its usefulness
is assumed. To the
question what the good
of it, sole answer silence.

9 (a) contind.
5. As in highest grade
factitious dignity must
be supported, so in every
lower.
Grudged the pittance necessary
to keep productive
labourers from starving:
not so the opulence for
supplying deficiency by
dignified prodigality.
Grieved at the over-population
of the sheep: not
so the do. of the wolves.
6. In England, by leaders
of both parties, Burk a
Whig, Rose a Tory, works
are extant, avowing the intention
of making for King's
dependents a provision
by which the whole subsistence
of the people could
not but be sooner or later
destroyed.
Proved by J.B. and uncontested:
contestation known
to be impossible.
7. Look to broad of Kingless
hatched by Bonaparte,
raised by Holy Alliance.
Dignity not los: profit
gained.
8. The old are not depressed
by their relation to the
new: so plainly great is
the distance: they are raither
raised by the contrast.
9. For support of the new
dignity, a perpetual tax has
been imposed on 1. Bavaria.
2. Wirtemberg. 3. Belgium.
4. Saxony. 5. Haonvoer: though
indirect, not the less burthensome.

9 (a) contind.
10. Money thus produced
at present: abhorrence of
the name King in future.
11. Emperors of Germany
and Russia continue Emperors.
For the name of the Empire,
Austria substituted
to Germany: the Sovereign
of Austria being despotic,
of Germany titular only.
12. English King would not
be Emperor, because the
delusion might have been
shaken by Parliamentary
Discussion.
13. French King they wd.
not make Emperor, because Usurper Bonaparte
had been the Usurper,
who had been seated by
fear, not unmixt with
love.
