In theprincipal trading-towns had been long growing up that animositytowards the aristocracy of which Henry VII. Availed himself to raise adespotism (and which, even in our day, causes the main disputes offaction); but the recent revolution was one in which the towns had hadno share. It was a revolution made by the representative of thebarons and his followers. It was connected with no advancement of themiddle class; it seemed to the men of commerce but the violence of aturbulent and disappoint...ed nobility.
