An address to the people of Great Britain and Ireland, exhorting, from the recent instances of disaffection, and the horror to which they were exposed, to continue peaceable: 1. From the difficulty of effecting a Revolution, under circumstances which attach the nation to its government, notwithstanding of some real evils admitted on all hands. 2. From the uncertain issue of such an experiment. 3. From the folly of contending for what we already possess in the most perfect degree, Liberty and Equality; and of allowing others to impose upon us the belief of being oppressed by evils which we do not feel, and which do not exist. 4. From the consideration that the taxes in general fall upon that part of the community which is best able to bear them; at least, that they do not affect the Labourer, the Mechanic, the Manufacturer, nor the Merchant. By a tradesman.
