American independence the interest and glory of Great-Britain : A new edition. To which is added, a copious appendix, containing two additional Letters to the Legislature; a letter to Edmund Burke, Esq; controverting his Principles of American Government. And a postscript, containing new Arguments on the Subject; A Draught for a Bill proposed to be brought into Parliament for restoring Peace and Harmony between Great-Britain and British America, and for perpetuating the same: Together with The essential Materials for a proposed Grand British League and Confederacy, to be entered into by Great-Britain and all the States of British America. The whole of which shews, beyond Denial or Doubt, that by granting the Colonists an unrestrained civil Freedom and Legislative Independence, we may most effectually secure their future Commercial Dependence upon, and consequently shall best promote the Interest and support the Glory of, Great-Britain. It is not to be hoped, in the corrupt State of human Nature, that any Nation will be subject to another, any longer than it finds its own Account in it, and cannot help itself. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * No Creatures suck the Teats of their Dams longer than they can draw Milk from them, or can provide themselves with better Food; nor will any Country continue their Subjection to another, only because their great Grand-Mothers were acquainted. This is the Course of human Affairs, and all wise States will always have it before their Eyes. Trenchard on Plantations and Colonies, in Cato's Letters, No. 106. Anno 1722
