This work was written in response to Mauduit's CONSIDERATIONS..., which argued that Britain should further her war against France in North America and the East Indies while abandoning the war in Continental Europe. The present pamphlet argues that it is impossible for a large commercial nation such as Britain to ignore events in Europe. The author maintains that further attempts at colonial expansion would antagonize other nations, especially France. SABIN 15208.
