Sinecures

An attempt of this sort unites in itself the perfection
of by absurdity and tyranny: it is at once to disgrace
to the heart that conceives the wish and to the head that
continues to exceu and about and and be the hand that attempts knows to execute
it. Such is the combination of absurdity and
tyranny involved in the practice of granting Offices in
reversion

Yes so the granting of offices in reversion: provided
always that there is business to do for them: business and that
of a sort for the doing of which to which it can happen to a man he be
unfit.

But if so it be in regard to the offer in question
so it be either that there is no business to do for it, then in this
supposition it is, and on
it is, and this alone, that this imputation and
absurdity and tyranny has no place.

To A private estate, a horse or a piece of land
may with a little impropriety be granted in reversion
as a possession.

To this pass then is the matter question brought: viz. that
in the case of him who claims to be entwined in the
possession of the g right of granting in reversion Offices of public trust, to exempt him from the charge of the
grossest absurdity combined with the most revolting flagrant tyranny,
all that can be done is to say that in respect he deals
by the office as men deal and are allowed to deal by his each mans
own private estate.
