Excerpt from The Speeches and Public Letters of the Liberator, Vol. 2: With Preface and Historical Notes

I do not think there has been any of that sagacity which might have been expected to have been exhibited by statesmanlike minds; on the contrary, a species of paltry controversy has arisen, undeserving of such an occasion as the present - this momentous occasion. The great question which the House has to decide is, how this great empire is to be governed and managed; because the manner of management in the present case depends on the men who have the conduct of public affairs. We have to decide upon what principles twenty-four millions of British subjects are to be governed. We have also to decide upon the fate of probably one hundred more million of human beings dependent on our control. And how has this subject been discussed? Seven or eight gentlemen who have spoken, have talked of where I dined. Yes, this has been a fruitful subject of eloquence for the great statesmen who have addressed the House on this most important occasion. I really do think that the ridicule will be interminable, the laughter inextinguishable, when it goes abroad that the greatest question which has ever agitated this House has been decided by the frequency with which I have dined with the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The case, indeed, is twice as strong as it has been put, for I have dined twice with his Excellency. I am glad that the gentlemen opposite did not discover this sooner, for then, instead of five, we should have had ten discourses on the subject. If the hon. gentlemen opposite only knew the excellence of the wines and the dinner, so as to have described them, there can be no doubt that they would have carried by a greater majority a motion in opposition to anybody who has dared to give them a good dinner.
