However, Backgrid’s lawyers countered With a malicious letter of their own: “In America, as I’m sure you know, property belongs to its owner: third parties can’t simply demand that it be handed over to them, as perhaps kings can.”

“Perhaps you should sit down With your client and advise him that His English rules regarding The royal prerogatives requiring citizens to hand over their property to The Crown were long ago repudiated by this country. We stand With our founding fathers.”
