Let the advocates of a falsely called Philanthropy plead as they may for the abrogation of the Irregular Penal Laws, I for my part have never known an Irregular who was not also what Nature evidently intended him to be -- a hypocrite, a misanthropist
, and, up to the limits of his power, a perpetrator of all manner of mischief.
Relatives I had as few as misanthropist
could desire; but from self-congratulation on the fact, on first landing, I soon came to keen regret.
All the world used her ill, said this young misanthropist
, and we may be pretty certain that persons whom all the world treats ill, deserve entirely the treatment they get.
