Quotations on Great Britain

1775 August 25. (to John Randolph). "I am sincerely one of those [who still wish for reunion with their parent country], and would rather be in dependance on Great Britain, properly limited, than on any nation upon earth, or than on no nation. But I am one of those too who rather than submit to the right of legislating for us assumed by the British parliament...would lend my hand to sink the whole island in the ocean."[1]
