Perhaps a forerunner of "hang together or hang separately."

New-York Magazine; Or, Literary Repository, vol. 6, May, 1795, p. 265, col. 1-2.

A SCOTCH Parson, in his prayer said, Laird bless the grand council the Parliament, and grant they may hang together....in accord and concord. No matter what cord, replied the other, so 'tis but a strong cord.
