O! 42 Here Rush offers a straightforward endorsement of the view that Wilson (a friend and ally) had recently sketched out. 43 Neither Rush nor Wilson was as yet prepared to take the next logical step and mount an affi rmative defense of the Stuarts against Parliament,44 but patriots after 1768 would waste little time in doing precisely this. II It is one of the great ironies in this richly ironic story that the raw materials of the patriot defense of the Stuarts were initially provided by allies of the British administration.

14 North America was now understood to be “outside the realm,” a separate dominion within the British Empire. ” But Franklin refused at this stage to argue that Parliament therefore possessed no legitimate jurisdiction over the colonies in the present day; he stated only that the colonies “have had, from their beginning, like Ireland, their separate parliaments, called modestly assemblies. . ”17 He took precisely the same line in his celebrated testimony before the House of Commons on February 13 of that year.
