“I am sorry they won’t let you have your sloop again, for I scorn to do anyone a mischief, when it is not to my advantage, damn the sloop, we must sink her, and she might be of use to you. Though you are a sneaking puppy, and so are all of those who will submit to be governed by laws which rich men have made for their own security; for the cowardly whelps have not the Courage to defend what they get by knavery; but damn ye altogether, damn them for a pack of crafty rascals, and you, who serve them, for a parcel of hen-hearted numbskulls. They vilify us, the scoundrels do, when there is only this difference, they rob the poor under the cover of law, forsooth, and We plunder the rich under the protection of our own Courage.”-Samuel Bellamy
