Stran 103 - Where the intrinsic value and acceptant capacity come together there is Effectual value, or wealth ; where there is either no intrinsic value, or no acceptant capacity, there is no effectual value ; that is to say, no wealth.
Stran 298 - God; and when they are not, or seem in any wise to need change, I will oppose them loyally and deliberately, not with malicious, concealed, or disorderly violence.
