Thomas Hamilton fought to introduce the pardons to make a point.
To seek to change England.
And he was killed for it.
His wife and I went to Charles Town to argue for the pardons, to make peace with England. And she was killed for it.
England has shown herself to me.
Gnarled and gray, and spiteful of anyone who would find happiness under her rule.
I’m through seeking anything from England except her departure from my island.
