Stran 368 - ... that a country unsettled at the commencement of this war,' claimed by the British crown, and ceded to it by the treaty of Paris, if wrested from the common enemy by the blood and treasure of the thirteen states, should be considered as a common property, subject to be parcelled out by Congress into free, convenient and independent governments, in such manner and at such times as the wisdom of that assembly shall hereafter direct.
Stran 313 - That excessive bail ought not to be required, nor excessive fines imposed ; nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
