"The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or
musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature,
by the hand of the Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”

“We are laboring hard to establish in this country principles more and more national,
and free from all foreign ingredients, so that we may be neither.Greeks nor Trojans,' but
truly Americans."—[HAMILTON TO KING, 1796, Æt. 39.)
