All Confidence Must Be Withheld from the Means We Use…

John Hancock

“In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as Men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgements… All confidence must be withheld from the Means we use; and reposed only on that GOD who rules in the Armies of Heaven, and without whose Blessing the best human Counsels are but Foolishness–and all created Power Vanity” – April 15,  1775, By Order of the [Massachusetts] Provincial Congress, John Hancock, President.
