To fill up Liberia with an ignorant, inexperienced, half-barbarized race, just escaped from the chains of slavery, would be only to prolong, for ages, the period of struggle and conflict which attends the inception
of new enterprises.
If, at the inception
of the race, only Goro and the stars had looked down upon the contestants, such was not the case at its finish, since from an embrasure near the summit of the wall two close-set black eyes peered down upon the two.
The response of his antagonist, while equally prompt in the inception
, was made with a slow, uniform, mechanical and, I thought, somewhat theatrical movement of the arm, that was a sore trial to my patience.
No matter how revolutionary and anarchist in inception
, there would be fools enough to give such an outrage the character of a religious manifestation.
Exactly what the parties have already done they shall do again; but that which we inferred from their nature and inception
, they will not do.
