8672. UNION (The Federal), Nourish.—

Possessed of the blessing of self-government,
and of such a portion of civil liberty as no
other civilized nation enjoys, it now behooves
us to guard and preserve them by a continuance
of the sacrifices and exertions by which
they were acquired, and especially to nourish
that Union which is their sole guarantee.—
R. to A. New London Plymouth Society. Washington ed. viii, 166.
