    ″‘Business!’ cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. ‘Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!‘”

    “But mercy is above this sceptred sway;

    And earthly power doth then shew likest Gods
    When mercy seasons justice.”
