3944. INDUSTRY, Fruits of.—[further continued].

To take from one, because
it is thought that his own industry and
that of his father's has acquired too much,
in order to spare to others, who, or whose
fathers have not exercised equal industry and
skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle
of association—the guarantee to every one of
a free exercise of his industry, and the fruits
acquired by it.—
