An Address to the Members of Both Houses of Parliament on the West India Question (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from An Address to the Members of Both Houses of Parliament on the West India Question Hz who has marked the progress of political controversy, must be well aware that there are times much more favourable than others for impartial discussion; and that the establish ment of truth, or of correct legislative views, frequently depends more upon a certain sus ceptibility of the public mind, than upon the cogency of reasoning with which those views are supported. Every political question is connected with long-cherished associations, and with many contingent relations, which induce us to lend a favourable ear to arguments which harmonise with our predominant passions, and to regard those of an opposite character with repugnance. In the progress of enquiry, first impulses are weakened; new relations arise; the appearance of things themselves is changed.
