Klappentext

Excerpt from An Oration, Delivered in Newburyport, on the Forty-Fifth Anniversary of American Independence, July 4, 1821

What expedient then Shall the established govern ments of Europe employ to arrest the rapid advance ment of liberal principles? Will they put their trust in the blind respect, with which mankind have been ac customed to regard superior birth? They might have done this in the dark ages, when the v'assal was but lit tle raised in estimation above the brute beasts in whose company he tilled the soil; but centuries are since gone by, and the oppressed and the Oppressor have descend ed to the tomb together, where their remains are moul dering and corrupting into the same undistinguishable dust. SO capricious and changeable is fortune that the very names of the haughty lords of other times are pre served only in the fugitive and decaying records of the historian, their race extinct, their titles transferred to the upstart courtier of yesterday, and their palaces be come the banqueting-hall in which the posterity Of their meanest Slave may now be revelling as gaily and arro gantly as ever they did in the proudest moments of their glory.
