Included is: "Since the news arrived that the Congress of America had chosen and declared General Washington Lord Protector, etc. of the United States of America, some of the warmest friends of the subjugation of America begin to say, 'they fear that America is lost; that the conquest of it is chimerical--almost visionary.'...".
