‘Comfortable Contemplations’: The Effects of Franchise Expansion on Long Term Social- Partisan Alignments



I see in the Church of England an immense and omnipresent ramification of machinery working without cost to the people - and daily and hourly lifting the masses of the people, rich and poor alike, from the dead and dreary level of the lowest and most material cares of life, up to the comfortable contemplations of higher and serener form of existence and destiny. I see in the Church of England a centre, and a source, and a guide of charitable effort, mitigating by its mendicant importunity the violence of human misery, whether mental or physical, and contributing to the work of alleviation from its own not superfluous resources.
