Hatsell, Baron—Mr. Cowper, I would not have you straiten yourself, but only ask those questions that are pertinent.
O love immense and independent, which nothing can limit or straiten!
I want you to consider what per cent you can pay, and not straiten yourselves too much.
Col. Harden, at the same time, with a body of mounted militia, had it in charge to straiten the enemy upon the Edisto.
Does he not, at this instant, straiten and invade your confederates, whom you have solemnly sworn to protect?
He told me he could not say but it might straiten him a little; but, however, it was my money, and I might want it more than he.
