A piece of propaganda that calls for the people of Massachusetts to support Federalist government officials who would distance the United States from England and France. The pamphlet voices opposition against Democratic-Republicans and anyone who would support a war with England or France. This publication alludes to the nearing War of 1812. During this time, Federalists felt that Democratic-Republicans were too closely aligned with England while Democratic-Republicans accused Federalists of allying themselves too close with France. Fears of being under the rule of a foreign power yet again following the American Revolutionary War are voiced frequently. The pamphlet also mentions contemporary politicians such as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Napoleon.
