Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Ballot-box
 
A weapon that comes down as still
  As snowflakes fall upon the sod;
But executes a freeman’s will,
  As lightning does the will of God;
And from its force, nor doors nor locks
Can shield you;—’tis the ballot box.
        John Pierpont.—A Word from a Petitioner.
