9187. WYTHE (George), American Revolution and.—[continued].

On the dawn of the
Revolution, instead of higgling on half-way
principles, as others did who feared to follow
their reason, he took his stand on the solid
ground that the only link of political union between
us and Great Britain, was the identity
of our Executive; that that nation and its
Parliament had no more authority over us than
we had over them, and that we were coordinate
nations with Great Britain and Hanover.—
To John Saunderson. Washington ed. i, 113.
(M. 1820)
