Notes

First edition of this uncommon pamphlet, published in the early months of the American War of Independence, and firmly asserting that the Americans "can no more stand against the strength of this country than light chaff against the impetuous whirlwind". "Let them then," he adds, "lay down their arms. Let them abandon their leaders of the revolt to the just vengeance of an insulted empire, and a veil may be indulgently cast over the delinquency of the rest". Scarce, with OCLC locating only 9 copies.
