Page 250 - If we remain one people, under an efficient ' government, the period is not far off when we may defy material injury from external annoyance; when we may take such an attitude as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to be scrupulously respected; when belligerent nations, under the impossibility of ^making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly hazard the giving us provocation; when we may choose peace or war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.

Page 35 - King, defender of the faith, &c., having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith and honor of our King and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia, do, by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic, for our better ordering and preservation, and furtherance of the ends aforesaid...
Page 118 - The powers delegated by the proposed constitution to the federal government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the state governments, are numerous and indefinite.
Page 335 - Ministers of the Gospel are, by their profession, dedicated to God and the care of souls, and ought not to be Diverted from the great duties of their functions ; therefore, no Minister of the Gospel, or Priest of any denomination whatever, shall be eligible to a seat in either House of the Legislature.
Page 33 - But the tide (which stays for no man) calling them away that were thus loath to depart, their Reverend pastor falling down on his knees (and they all with him), with watery cheeks commended them with most fervent prayers to the Lord and his blessing.
