To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world:â€" He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome andneces-saryjfor the pubhVgood. \] fj ( J { \ \' f / f, j / 1" }'<'> U tie has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate andt pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and, when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. ' """ ! *' "" He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislatureâ€"a right inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only.

He hus made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries. . He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without the consent of our legislatures. He has affected to render the military independent of, and superior to, the civil power. . , ' He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our lawsâ€"giving his .assent to their acts of pretended legislation.
