evident that all men are crea
ted single: that they are endow
ed with certain unalienable
rights-; that among these are not
to marry and single blessedness.
That to secure these rights so
cieties arc organized. among cx
clasivcs, deriving their just pow
ers froth the grand " universal
compact of man againsl.w oin;w ;
that whenever any forms or cer
emonies become destructive of
these ends, it is the right of the
cxclusitts to alter or .abolish
them, '''.and to institute a tribunal;
overshadowing that of Copies,
laying its foundation on .sti'.h
principle.;; and orgaizing its pow
ers in such form as to them shall
seem most likely to effect their
singleness and happiness. Pru
dence indeed, will dictate, that
rights and ceremonies long es
tablished, should not be chang
ed for light and transient caus
es; and accordingly, all expe
rience hath shewn that cxcla
sires are more disposed Jo suffer
while evils are.s.ulYcrablc, than
to right themselves by abolish
ing the forms towhich they have
been unaccustomed. But when
a long rrain of abuses and usur
pations, pursuing invariably the
same object, evinces a design
to reduce them under '"an-absolute
despotism, it is their right,
it is their duty, to throw off such
controlling influence, jnd 16 pro

They have' refused their as

without our consent.
For depriving us in many ca
ses, of an impartial dial in the
iibnrial of Cupid.
For ticking many exclusivcs.
For hacking many exclusivcs.
For m xrrying many excusivss.
J hey have obstructed t he ad
ministration of pleasuic, by re
fusing their assent to laws for
establishing the privileges of
exclusivcs.
They have kept among us in
times of peace many intimida
ting 'instruments, without the
consent of exclusivcs.
' They have affected to render
themselves independent of, and
superior to the exclusivcs, -
They have constrained our
brethren, trfken captive on the
Ocean of love, to bear arms a
gtiinst usnud to become the ex
ecutioners of exclusivcs.
lo every s-lage of these op
pressions we have petitioned for
redress in the 'most- ' humble
terms; our 'petitions have been
answered only by YepeatTul in

are thus marked by r very e.ct
