A Voice From The Past

“Our intentions are to assist, as far as our abilities are competent, the cause which has been so well begun, and which must finally prevail if its advocates persevere with fortitude and consistency. One principle, in particular, we should wish to inculcate, which is, that the people have nothing to expect from any exertions but their own. The choice of liberty or slavery rests with them, and on their virtue and perseverance depend the probability of their triumph.”

—(The Gorgon, No. 1, May 23rd, 1818.)
