[Philadelphia? 1807?]. 86pp, bound in attractive modern plain wrappers. Tanned, scattered fox, Good+.

Dedicated "To Those Members of Congress Who Have the Sense to Perceive and the Spirit to Pursue the True Interests of their Country," the pamphlet attacks English invasions of American sovereignty. Referring to the British ship Leopard's assault on the Chesapeake, the author says that, "The attempt to search a public ship of war appears to us unjustifiable; and more especially so on our own coast." The author predicts, correctly, that the British would offer reparations and thus avoid war over the incident; and offers unflattering opinions on Jefferson-- "a schemer, perpetually occupied with some strange out-of-the-way project"-- and Madison, "a man of feeble mind."
