under any form of compulsion, it cannot
be subordinated to the needs, opinions or wishes of others. It is
an object of sacrifice. The creator stands on his own judgment,

think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy
in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I
traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more
