1778 American Loyalty Oath


I do swear I do not hold myself bound to yield any allegiance or obedience

to the King of Great Brittain, his heir or successors ; And that I will be true

and faithful to the United States of America. And will to the utmost of my power,

support, maintain and defend the freedom and independence thereof and the

Government now established against all open enemies and secret and

traitorous conspiracies and will use my utmost endeavors to disclose and

make known to the Governor of attempts against this Government which may

come to my knowledge, So help me God.

Source; 1778 Chronicles of St. Mary's
