Excerpt from The Anti-Gallican, or Standard of British Loyalty, Religion and Liberty: Including a Collection of the Principal Papers, Tracts, Speeches, Poems, and Songs, That Have Been Published on the Threatened Invasion
The expiring embers of War being again re-lumed by the vengeance of an implacable enemy, and its ﬂame directed against the dearest liberties of our native land, it becomes no less the interest, than the duty, of every Englishman, to lend his aid in rescuing his Country from the impending danger. The storm excited by the most imperious of our foes, is driven onward with acelerity proportioned to the magnitude of the pur posed mischief. Not content with the subjugation of the greatest part of Europe, the first consul OF france directs every. Rugine of his malice to the overthrow and destruction of this Island. The firm and dignified resistance which it has opposed to the extension of his tyranny, has raised his hatred, and given force to his malignity. Intoxicated by the more than regal Splendours pf the state he has usurped, he would bend the world to his will, and force it to stoop beneath the footstool of his power. Dazzled by success, and blinded by ﬂattery, his judgment has become morbid, and every opposition to his purposes is followed by deep and lasting displeasure. Hence his enmity to Britain for daring toraise barriers to the overwhelming progress of his destructive inﬂuence.
