Excerpt from The Works of the Right Honorable Edmund Burke, Vol. 10: Fourth Edition
My Lords, I have to state to-day the root of all these misdemeanors, namely, the pecuniary cor ruption and avarice which gave rise and primary motion to all the rest of the delinquencies charged to be committed by the governor-general.
My Lords, pecuniary corruption forms not only, as your Lordships will Observe in the charges before you, an article of charge by itself, but likewise so' intermixes with the whole, that it is necessary to give, in the best manner I am able, a history of that corrupt system which brought on all the subsequent acts of corruption. I will venture to say there is no one act, in which tyranny, malice, cruelty, and op pression can be charged, that does not at the same time carry evident marks of pecuniary corruption.
