Side 138 - This fundamental principle flows from the very nature of our free republican governments, that no man should be compelled to do what the laws do not require ; nor to refrain from acts which the laws permit.
Side 115 - It can regulate or new model the succession to the crown ; as was done in the reign of Henry VIII. and William III. It can alter the established religion of the land ; as was dono in a variety of instances, in the reigns of king Henry VIII.
