Reflections on the rise, progress, and probable consequences, of the present contentions with the colonies. By a freeholder.

John Erskine (1721 - 1803)

Several late pamphlets composed with much art and ability have painted the claims and conduct of the North Americans; and thereby, have not a little inflamed the resentment of the mother country. The author of this small tract humbly attempts to soften that resentment. He represents, from the writings of the Colonists, and of gentlemen who had the best access to know their sentiments, what concessions might have been procured from them by gentle measures, and what they complained of in those acts of parliament which immediately occasioned their taking up arms. - Summary by John Erskine
