    Excerpt from A Plan for the Home Government of India: With Provisions Calculated to Prevent or Limit the Evils and Dangers of Patronage To give that power to the Government of the Crown which it is clearly desirable it should possess in ruling such a dependency as India; namely, an arbitrary power, coupled with grave responsibility for its exercise. To bring the proceedings of the Home Government of India constantly and distinctly under the general supervision of the Houses of Parliament; without which, no plan for the administration of a British dependency, conquered or colonized, could be for a moment entertained. A principal object of my scheme is, I repeat, to limit Ministerial patronage and Parliamentary jobbery, as much as it is possible to limit them in free and happy Britain; where jobs and jobbery are as endemic as consumption: where they blossom and bloom, and give fruit so luxuriantly, that a lover of jobs in the abstract (and there be many such) might exclaim with the Persian poet, "Agr behisht dur zumeen ust "Humeen ust - humeen ust - humeen ust." a distich which I will not be so uncomplimentary to the kind reader as to translate; since every one is, in the present day, so conversant in matters connected with the East, that we, who have sojourned all our lives in that blessed country which "showers on its kings barbaric pearl and gold," have no manner of chance. But touching this question of patronage and job, you, my discriminating public, imagine that you have nipped the whole thing in the bud, by your system of competition for appointments to India. I beseech you, "Lay not that flattering unction to your soul." Assume, though the assumption might cause a man of the world to smile, that the best competitors will always be the successful and chosen ones, it is of no vital importance.
