§ On the Question that 2,000l. be granted for statues to Hampden, Lord Falkland, and Lord Clarendon,
hoped that amongst the illustrious rulers of this country to whom statues were to be erected, Cromwell would not be forgotten. He believed that, of the monarchs who ruled this country for 1,000 years, there was not one to be found more distinguished as a soldier and a statesman. Cromwell was as worthy of remembrance by the people of this country as Napoleon by the people of France. Less crime and less cruelty could be brought home to him than to any one who had attained such renown as a warrior and statesman.
§ Vote agreed to.
