Seite 106 - At the same time let the sovereign authority of this country over the colonies be asserted in as strong terms as can be devised, and be made to extend to every point of legislation whatsoever. That we may bind their trade, confine their manufactures, and exercise every power whatsoever, except that of taking their money out of their pockets without their consent.

Seite 106 - Upon the whole, I will beg leave to tell the house what is really my opinion. It is that the Stamp Act be repealed absolutely, totally, and immediately.
Seite 124 - I think I can announce it as a fact, that it is not the wish or interest of that government, or any other upon this continent, separately or collectively, to set up for independence...
Seite 74 - I expect every nerve to be strained to carry the bill. It is not a question relating to administration, but personally to myself; therefore I have a right to expect a hearty support from every one in my service, and I shall remember defaulters.
Seite 155 - I will not give myself up to bondage. My dear lord, I will rather risk my crown than do what I think personally disgraceful. It is impossible this nation should not stand by me.
