Stran 449 - Texas by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings or by the powers vested in the marshals...
Stran 280 - ... that whosoever of the citizens of the United States shall render himself liable to punishment or forfeiture under the law of nations, by committing, aiding, or abetting hostilities against any of the said powers, or by carrying to any of them those articles which are deemed contraband by the modern usage of nations, will not receive the protection of the United States against such punishment or forfeiture...
Stran 501 - Were it not then, that I am principled agt. selling negroes, as you would do cattle at a market, I would not, in twelve months from this date, be possessed of one as a slave. — I shall be happily mistaken, if they are not found to be a very troublesome species of property ere many years pass over our heads...

Stran 173 - I believe it will be difficult, if not impracticable, to manage the reins of government, or to keep the parts of it together; for if instead of laying our shoulders to the machine after measures are decided on, one pulls this way and another that, before the utility of the thing is fairly tried, it must inevitably be torn asunder ; and in my opinion the fairest prospect of happiness and prosperity that ever was presented to man, will be lost, perhaps, forever.
