Strona 163 - Commentaries, remarks, that this law of Nature being coeval with mankind and dictated by God himself, is of course superior in obligation to any other.

Strona 179 - WHEN a custom is actually proved to exist, the next inquiry is into the legality of it ; for, if it is not a good custom, it ought to be no longer used; " Malus usus abolendus est" is an established maxim of the law h.
Strona 171 - The only question before us is, whether the cause on the return is sufficient ? If it is, the negro must be remanded ; if it is not, he must be discharged. Accordingly the return states that the slave departed and refused to serve ; whereupon he was kept, to be sold abroad. So high an act of dominion must be recognized by the law of the country where it is used. The power of a master over his slave has been extremely different in different countries.
Strona 15 - May it please Your Excellency, We, Her Majesty's dutiful and loyal subjects the Commons of Upper Canada, in Provincial Parliament assembled...
