THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS

ACT I.

SCENE I.--Congress assembled; John Hancock in the chair as president; his keynote speech.

JOHN HANCOCK.[2] Gentlemen of the Continental Congress:--I thank you for the signal honor you have conferred on me in making me your presiding officer. I am glad to see so many Colonies represented in this Congress. Let us show the nations of the old world what the people of the new world will do when left to themselves, to their own unbiased good sense, and to their own true interests. On us depend the destinies of our country--the fate of three millions of people, and of the countless millions of our posterity. Matchless is our opportunity--matchless also is our responsibility! May the God of nations guide us in our deliberations and in our actions.
