The following bold lines are taken from the "Craftsman, or Say's British Journal." The American newspapers, both loyal and whig, generally republished them.
Blush Britain ! blush at thy inglorious war, This civil contest, this ignoble jar; Think how unjustly you've begun the fray, With cruel measures rous'd America.
To arms: each swain must leave the peaceful field, And 'gainst his brethren lift the sword and shield. Their spacious commerce, now in ruin lies, And thro* their laud the hostile standard flies.
