If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you and may posterity forget that ye were once our countrymen.

    如果你们热爱财富大于自由,而奴役的宁静大于为自由而生的争夺,那就和平地离开我们。我们寻求的不是您的顾问,也不是您的手臂。蹲下舔舔你的手,也许后代会忘记你们曾经是我们的同胞。
