7778. SELF-GOVERNMENT, Irresistible.—

Alliances, holy or hellish, may be
formed, and retard the epoch of deliverance,
may swell the rivers of blood which are yet
to flow, but their own will close the scene,
and leave to mankind the right of self-government.—
To Marquis Lafayette. Washington ed. vii, 324. Ford ed., x, 280.
(M. 1823)
