Thus a War Has Begun

in by Warren, top 20 quotes

Date: May 17, 1775

”Thus a War has begun, which I have frequently said to you and others, would if not timely prevented, overturn the British Empire, but I hope after a full conviction both of our Ability and resolution to Maintain our rights, Britain will act with that Wisdom which it is so absolutely Necessary for her preservation; this I most heartily wish, as I feel a warm Affection still for the Parent state.”
