OR, A

DIALOGUE

CONCERNING

Government,

Wherein, by Observations drawn from other KINGDOMS and STATES both Ancient and Modern, an Endeavour is used to discover the present POLITICK DISTEMPER of our OWN, with the CAUSES, and REMEDIES.

Henry Neville

[by Henry Neville]

Non Ego sum Vates, sed Prisci conscius aevi.
Pluribus exemplis haec tibi Mysta Cano,
Res nolunt male administrari.

The Second Edition, with Additions.

LONDON,

Printed for S.I. and Sold by R. Dew, 1681.


Non ego sum vates, sed prisci conscius aevi,
Pluribus exemplis haec tibi mysta cano.
Res nolunt male administrari.

I am no prophet, but know about times past and, a priest of the mysteries, sing of many examples for you.[1] A government cannot subsist long under an ill administration.
