8724. UNITY, Duty of.—

Sole depositaries
of the remains of human liberty, our
duty to ourselves, to posterity, and to mankind,
calls on us by every motive which is
sacred or honorable, to watch over the safety
of our beloved country during the troubles
which agitate and convulse the residue of the
world, and to sacrifice to that all personal
and local considerations.—
R. To A. New York Legislature. Washington ed. viii, 167.
