Old England for ever, or, Spanish cruelty display'd; wherein the Spaniards right to America is impartially examined and found defective; their pretensions founded in blood, supported by cruelty, and continued by oppression. I. A Compleat History of America from the first Discovery thereof to the present Time; with an Account of its antient Inhabitants, and the shocking and tragical Methods used by the Spaniards to deprive them of their Country, and possess themselves of their rich Mines, &c. II. Great Britain's Right to America prior to that of Spain, fully proved to be some Hundred Years before Christopher Columbus conducted the Spaniards thither. III. The Spaniards inveterate Hatred of the English; their constant Treachery, Persidy, and unfair Practices in all their Dealings with them, proved to be the Effect of their Jealousy; that Britain not only rivals them in the Trade, but will one Day resume her antient Claim to that New World. IV. A View of the Spanish Trassick to the West Indies; the Nature of the Commerce, the Trading Companies by whom it is carried on, and how far it concerns England to regard it in the present War. V. Spanish Tyranny, exemplify'd in the intolerable Oppression and barbarous Treatment of the poor Indians, which is so severe and inhuman, that they would gladly become subject to the British Crown. VI. Geographical Remarks on the Situation and Extent of America, the Strength and Condition of the fortified Places claimed by the Spaniards; and also of those subject to England. The Whole intended to give a clear Prospect of that remote Part of the World, which is now the Seat of War; being a Treatise very proper to be read at this Time by all Well-Wishers to their Country.
