Here the people are
those for whom they
are in trust.

114. 12.
Under every government
this situation
has place.
1. In a purely despotic
monarchy, all
other functionaries
trustees, Monarch the
only person for whom
they are in trust.

115. 13.
Asiaticé this maintained
without disguise.

116. 14.
Europpeanné, in
practice, yes: in theory,
uniformly and steadily,

117. 15.
When heir apparent,
present English
Monarch acknowledged allowed
himself trustee for the
people. Really a trustee,
he would be removable
for breach of trust:
which, the Constitution
unchanged, he
notoriously is not. This,
then, was but a way
of speaking:
[designed to please
Whigs, whose deceptive
language this is.

Of trusteeship, at least

1. In English Common's
House, in profession

in fact, none but a
small minority,
never large enough to
produce any effect:
the great majority

122 20.
In a rhetorical flourish,
Monarch alone
has acknowledged
himself Trustee for the
people. Lords not ever
thus. Sole professed
object and use of their
power, maintaining
itself. In vain would
they pretend it of any
use to the people:
never could they shew
any the smallest:
point blank opposite

Spaniards, felicitate
yourselves that you
have no House of Lords,
no functionaries

compose a constant
majority there. Common's
