No. 2. 26th November, 1807.
To the Printer of the Royal Gazette.
Sir, - Place America in what point of view we will, she can only be termed an agricultural country, while she ranks as a neutral, - and, as a commercial Nation, so long, and no longer than she remains at Peace with Great Britain, whose Naval Power is adequate to controul [sic] the present commercial operations of the World.
The system of defence recommended by the present rulers of the American People for the safety of their Ports, and protection of their Commerce by no means affords so strong a proof of their progressive proficiency, in either Naval or Military tactics . . .
