Seite 104 - I rejoice that America has resisted. Three millions of people, so dead to all the feelings of liberty as voluntarily to submit to be slaves, would have been fit instruments to make slaves of the rest.
Seite 135 - These facts have given the last stab to agonizing affection, and manly spirit bids us to renounce forever these unfeeling brethren. We must endeavor to forget our former love for them, and hold them as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace, friends.
Seite 87 - Hockeril, where he found company — had sat up all night drinking, and had not been in bed when he came to move his Bill, which he had not even drawn. This was genius, was almost inspiration.
