Samuel Adams 1722 - 1803

"If ye love wealth better than liberty,

the tranquility of servitude better

than the animating contest of freedom,

go home from us in peace.

We ask not your counsels or arms.

Crouch down

and lick the hands which feed you.

May your chains set lightly upon you,

and may posterity forget

that ye were our countrymen."

---Samuel Adams 1722-1803

member of the first Continental Congress,
5th of September, 1774;
until the year 1781
