Seite 233 - ... of greater personal independence and consequence, under the operation of a more equal government, and of what is far more precious than mere religious toleration, a perfect equality of religious privileges; would probably flock from Europe to the United States, to pursue their own trades or professions, if they were once made sensible of the advantages they would enjoy...
Seite 313 - They have a womanish attachment to France and a womanish resentment against Great Britain.
