Opinions on Reform. No. III. Lord J. Russell.The question is, Why not disfranchise the unconvicted Boroughs? To this I answer, that I do not by any means maintain that the Resolutions I now propose comprise all the Amendments that can be made in the frame of this House...No! the principles of the construction of this House Are Pure and Worthy. Small as the remaining treasure of the Constitution is, I cannot consent to throw it into the wheel for the chance of obtaining a prize in the Lottery of Constitutions."
