To Aristides Though there would be no great hazard of mistake, in inferring the Writer of the Paper under the signature of Aristides, from “the appropriate and prominent features” which characterise the stile of that paper; yet I forbear to imitate the example which has been set with too little decorum, by naming or describing the supposed author.

France at the time of issuing the proclamation was engaged & likely to be engaged in war, with all or almost all Europe; without a single ally in that quarter of the Globe.
