us read and recollect and impress upon our souls the views and ends of
our more immediate forefathers, in exchanging their native country for
a dreary, inhospitable wilderness . . . Recollect their amazing

or materials for commerce. Recollect the civil and religious
principles and hopes and expectations which constantly supported and
carried them through all hardships with patience and resignation.

themselves and us and ours, which conquered all discouragements,
dangers, and trials ."
