Stran 130 - While I recollect with satisfaction, that the religious society of which you are members, have been, throughout America, uniformly, and almost unanimously the firm friends to civil liberty, and the persevering promoters of our glorious revolution ; I cannot hesitate to believe, that they will be the faithful supporters of a free, yet efficient general government.
