This new world hath been the asylum for the persecuted lovers of civil and religious liberty from every part of Europe. --Thomas Paine

Hither have they fled, not from the tender embraces of the mother, but from the cruelty of the monster; and it is so far true of England, that the same tyranny which drove the first emigrants from home, pursues their descendants still.
