What would you do?  Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?  And, when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you where would you hide the laws all being flat?  This country is planted thick with laws from coast to coast.  Man's laws, not God's; and if you cut them down do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would follow?
