I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it. Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them. The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. Whose foot is to be the measure to which ours are all to be cut or stretched? Every day we present the best quotes!
