Dramatic Reading of Poem
"My thoughts can reason, and my limbs can move,
The same as yours; like yours my heart can love:
Alike my body food and sleep sustains;
Alike our wants, our pleasures, and our pains.
One sun rolls o'er us, common skies around;
One globe supports us, and one grave must bound."
"Yet was I born, as you are, no man's slave,
An heir to all that liberal Nature gave;"
