DISQUISITIONS, &c.

After treating of our duty to the Gods, it is proper to teach that which we

owe to our Country. For our Country is, as it were, a Secondary God, and the first and greatest Parent.-.-It is to be preferred to Parents, Wives, Children, Friends, and all things, the Gods only excepted.--- And if our Country perishes, it is as impoffible to save an Individual, as to preserve one of the fingers of a mortified hand.

very remarkable Epocha, when the Americans laid down external
commerce, took up arms, and internal manufactures, to support their
conftitutional liberty against the despotic encroachments of royal,
ministerial, and parliamentary Traitors; because false delicacy then
vanished from royal names and royal things, as utterly insufficient to
varnish over criminal actions, although attempted by men that once
were, and might have continued majestick.
