1363. COLONIES (The American), Union of.—

We cannot, my Lord, close with
the terms of that Resolution [Lord North's
Conciliatory Proposition] because * * * [it] involves the interests of all the other
Colonies. We are now represented in General
Congress by members approved by this
House, where the former union, it is hoped,
will be so strongly cemented, that no partial
applications can produce the slightest departure
from the common cause. We consider
ourselves as bound in honor, as well as interest,
to share one general fate with our
sister Colonies; and should hold ourselves
base deserters of that union to which we
have acceded, were we to agree on any
measures distinct and apart from them.—
Address to Lord Dunmore from Va. House of Burgesses. Ford ed., i, 457.
