3953. INJURY, The Colonies and.—

[During] the reigns which preceded his
Majesty's[George III.], the violations of our
rights were less alarming, because repeated at
more distant intervals than that rapid and
bold succession of injuries which is likely
to distinguish the present from all other
periods of American history. Scarcely have
our minds been able to emerge from the astonishment
into which one stroke of parliamentary
thunder had involved us, before another
more heavy, and more alarming, is
fallen on us.—
Rights of British America. Washington ed. i, 130. Ford ed., i, 435.
