Script Details

People made fun of me for being small of physical stature. However the real measure of a man is from the neck up, and I used that very substantial stature to ridicule and make fun of the entire British nation that oppressed my country. Born in 1737 in Philadelphia I later graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, opened a store and married Anne Borden of Bordentown, New Jersey. About 1773 we moved to Bordentown across the street from her father’s house. By 1774 I was caught up in the feelings of anger with the acts of Parliament and used my “weapons”, of pen and ink, to write “A pretty story written in the Year of Our Lord 2774” in which I mocked the King as Father wedded to money mad stepmother Parliament. I represented New Jersey in the Continental Congress and proudly signed the Declaration of Independence. I designed a naval flag that was later adopted as the flag of the United States and also designed the official seal of the State of New Jersey. My Bordentown home was looted several times and in spite of my suffering I wrote, “I have suffered much by the Invasion of the Goths & Vandals.… the Savages plundered me to their Hearts’ content–but I do not repine, as I really esteem it an honour to have suffered in my Country’s Cause in Support of the Rights of human Nature and of civil Society.” After the war I was measured from my neck up and appointed a Federal Judge. My obituary in May 1791 stated that the history of the causes leading to the establishment of the United States “will not be fully traced unless much is ascribed to the irresistible influence of the ridicule which he poured forth from time to time upon the enemies of these great political events.”
