Lots going on here . . . for the Americanists, there is discussion of the Quebec bill and taxation of the American colonies. For historians of English politics there is review of parliamentary and newspaper "comparison . . . between the public and private virtues of their present Majesties, and those of King William and Queen Mary. The merits, also, of Roman Catholics, and of Dissenters from the Church of England, respecting allegiance and liberty, and their claims to national protection, are fairly stated, from their past and present transactions."
