Excerpt from The Jacquerie, or the Lady and the Page: A Historical Romance

By this time, however, great changes and ameliorations had taken place in the condition of that class, and they stood in a very different position from that in the had been placed at the time that Europe first issued fo from the darkness of the ninth century. Many wise and good monarchs had willingly and anxiously contributed to add comforts to the situation of the lower orders, and if not actually to unbind the fetters from their hands, at least so to regulate the relations between the lords of the soil and them, that those fetters might not be made more galling. Many unwise and vicious monarchs, too - for God often uses the wicked as instruments of good, - in their quarrels with the baronage, which some times trod rather hard upon the skirts of the royal mantle, had endeavoured to punish the obnoxious class by giving back some of the privileges of man to those on whom that class trampled; and thus, though the villeins upon the lord's estates or territory were still nominally his chattels, as much as his horse, his dog, or his hawk, yet in his dealing with them he was restrained within certain limits and by certain rules: their property was protected, their lives and persons were under the safe nard of the law, and they were no longer a mere herd of catt e, to be dealt with at the leasure of a brutal owner.
