I am glad to hear that my countrymen are
resolved to act like men. We are seeking nothing but the rights of our
forefathers - liberty is not worth having, if it is not worth fighting
James 'Purlie' Wilson
My suffering countrymen! I remain under
the firm conviction and I die a Martyr in the cause of Truth and
Justice, and in the hope that you will soon succeed in the cause which I
took up arms to defend.
They never fail who die in a great cause
The block may soak their gore;
Their heads may sodden in the run:
Their limbs be strung to city gate and castle walls,
But still their spirits walk abroad!
