2. Intellectual

37. or 14. +
Example 2. Gratifications
for favorites of
both sexes, associates in
and instruments of,
pleasure in all shapes.
For a dependent of
his or her own, a
favorite wants an
office in Monarch's gift.

38. or 15. +
Depredation, oppression,
misery go on
their course: hence
disturbance to
Monarch's ease. From
sympathy for the
sufferers, no: this
not more
than Sensible.
But by rival tale
bearers results are
whispered, by which
Monarch's ease is

39. or 16. +
Example 1. Committed
this or that depredation,
in the profit of
which Monarch has
no share, or no
sufficient share: neither
by self nor favourite.
By such misdeed, displeasure
might not be
incapable of being
produced in Monarch's
mind. By a tale to
this effect, a tale bearer
might hope to
promote his purpose.

40. or 17. +
Not so by tale of a
misdeed by which Monarchs
sinister interest on a
favourites do was promoted
whatsoever the
misery produced in the
people, were it to end

But among the
sufferers misery and
despair might at any time
produce an assassin.
Strange if among so

Meantime, howsoever
insane, howsoever

42. or 19. +
Anglicé in every
Session, hundreds of times
does King join with
people's sham representatives
and Lords self
representatives in
declaring himself most

So in Liturgy [by a
declaration which all
are punishable for not
joining in] "most religious
and gracious." Gracious
to all he smiles on:
Most religious Gracious Charles 2
heard himself called
while scoffing at religion.

43. or 20. +
Of lying in all these forms,
the Kings creatures have
constantly the benefit,

may go on its course with
little difference
