as tho funds will allow and as it L<
my opinion that a republican form
of government is the best adapted
for the happiness of man, it is my
wish that tho children so to be ed
ucated may bo well grounded in
such principles, that they be
taught early to read republican
treatises in order that they may bo
made acquainted with their own
rights and those of others, so that
when they grow up they may fool
and know their own weight nnd
importance in society and bo en
abled to defend and support a re
publican form of government in its
purity and which has been consti
tutionally guaranteed to all the
citizens of America.
And lastly I do hereby nominate
and appoint my trusty and well be
loved friends, Wm. Tenptn and

witness whereof I have, hereunto
