You can find this in a lot of free google books too.

I noticed with some irritation that my favorite sites with the entire speech in text are down. A lot of sites posts 'parts', not the whole thing, and I can't help feeling it's intentional censorship - but they do it with a lot of other documents too.

This speech was given August 1st, 1776, right before the signing of the Declaration of Independence*1, for the Declaration of Independence, and is called "American Independence" by Samuel Adams.

*1 Only John Hancock and the the secretary of congress Charles Thomson actually signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. The rest of congress signed it on August 2nd, 1776.

*2 Charles Thomson was not only secretary of congress, but in later years, ended up translating the entire Bible from the Septuagint into English, considered the best translation of it at that time.

* John Hancock was widely known for issuing proclamations calling for prayer and fasting.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
