..I challenge the warmest advocate (supporter) for reconciliation,

to shew (show), a single advantage that this continent can reap (gain),

by being connected with Great Britain. I repeat the challenge, not a

single advantage is derived (acquired). Our corn will fetch its price

in any market in Europe, and our imported goods must be paid for,

buy them where we will…

self-evident, that all Men are created

just powers from the Consent of the

Governed … Declaration of Independence 1776
