6. In such a change, abstraction made of public opinion,
there would be neither novelty nor danger.

Not novelty: forasmuch as in Scottish causes
the supreme judicature in relation to those causes is
actually possessed and exercised by the House of Lords.

Nor danger: forasmuch as for this extra extent
of supreme judicial power (relation being had to English
causes) no inconvenience has ever been found or supposed
to be the place.

But on the other in a hand, neither would there under
a constitution already formed long ago settled – (and as such possessing
an assurance of stability far beyond any that could ever be
possessed by a the most perfect constitution in a nearly formed and
green state –) neither in such a change would there be
any practical use use worth regarding.

From the two small branches of supreme judicial power
thus deposited or left as it were by accident in the King's
hands, no inconvenience whatever seems ever to have
taken place or been alledged or suspected to have taken
place.

The change therefore being on the one hand without
considerable danger, on the other hand without considerable use – the use of the alluded to
as inertia, the inconvenience attached to all change
as such was quite sufficient to operate on part of utility
as a bar to any such change.
