found who does not know something to Ins

Congress, ho has always been the champi

abolish imprisonment for debt, that would
confer honor on the great name of Wash

bravery ia of that chivalrous kind, that nei
ther shrinks from ror carc3 for danger. He
never deserted his post, nor shrunk from
perils . His courage it was that gained the
brilliant victory of tho Thames' His friends
