THOUGHTS ON THE LETTER OF EDMUND BURKE, ESQ; TO THE SHERIFFS OF BRISTOL, ON THE AFFAIRS OF AMERICA BY EARL OF ABINGDON

Publication Date: 1777

A reply to Burke's Letter ... on the Affairs of America (1777): "...If the liberty of our fellow-subjects in America are to be taken from them, it is for the idiot only to suppose that we can preserve our own. The dagger uplifted against the breast of America, is meant for the heart of Old England. The leading British supporter of colonial rights attacks Burke for temporizing." #0001
