I've got no thought of yielding the palm of the USA to any Grecians or Romans that have been ever born. we have now equalled the bravest in occasions of probability, and excelled the wisest within the building of civil governments, not anyone in the United States excepted. From this agreeable eminence allow us to take a evaluate of current affairs. The spirit of corruption is so inseparably interwoven with British politics, that their Ministry consider all mankind are ruled by means of an identical reason. they've got no thought of a humans filing even to transitority inconvenience from an attachment to rights and privileges. Their plans of commercial are calculated via the hour and for the hour, and are uniform in not anything however the corruption which supplies them start. They by no means had, neither have they at present, any usual plan for the conquest of the United States through hands. They recognize now not how you can cross approximately it, neither have they energy to impression it in the event that they may possibly recognize. the object isn't in the compass of human practicability, for the USA is just too wide both to be absolutely conquered or passively defended. yet she can be actively defended by way of defeating or making prisoners of the military that invades her. And this can be the one procedure of defence that may be valuable in a wide state. there's something in a battle carried on via invasion which makes it vary in situations from the other mode of struggle, simply because he who conducts it can't inform even if the floor he profits, be for him, or opposed to him, while he first makes it. within the iciness 76 common Howe marched with an air of victory in the course of the Jerseys, the final result of which was once his defeat, and basic Burgoyne at Saratoga skilled a similar destiny from an identical reason. The Spaniards approximately years in the past have been defeated by means of the Algerines within the similar demeanour, that's, their first triumphs grew to become a capture during which they have been completely routed. And whoever will attend to the conditions and occasions of a struggle carried on by means of invasion, will locate, that any invader, with a view to be ultimately conquered needs to first start to overcome. I confess myself a kind of who think the lack of Philadelphia to be attended with extra benefits than accidents. The case stood hence. The enemy imagined Philadelphia to be of extra significance to us than it rather used to be; for we know that it had lengthy ceased to be a port, no longer a shipment of products have been introduced into it for close to a twelve-month, nor any fix’d manufactories, nor even send development carried on in it; but because the enemy believed the conquest of it to be attainable, and to that trust additional the absurd concept that the soul of all the USA was once situated there and will be conquered there, it evidently follows, that their ownership of it, through now not answering the top proposed, needs to get a divorce the plans that they had so foolishly long gone upon, and both oblige them to shape a brand new one, for which their current power isn't adequate, or to offer over the try out. We by no means had so small a military to struggle opposed to, nor so reasonable a chance of ultimate luck as now. The demise wound is already given.
