    .Patrick Henry uses the following devices in his "Speech to the Virginia Convention": 1. Rhetorical questions. e.g. "I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission?" "Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir she has none." "Why stand we here idle?" 2. Emotional appeals. e.g."Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss." (This is also a Biblical allusion, and as such appeals to one's emotional faith.) "Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us." "There is no retreat, but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston!" "I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" 3. Logical appeals. e.g. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation." "It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter."
