In the following pages I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and common sense...Volumes have been written on the subject of the struggle between [Britain] and America. Men of all ranks have embarked in the controversy, from different motives, and with various designs; but all have been ineffectual, and the period of debate is closed. Arms, as the last resource, decide the contest; the appeal was the choice of the king, and the continent hath accepted the challenge.
Pamphlet uses simple facts, plain arguments, and common senses to write about the struggle between Britain and America. Men from different ranks tried to solve the problem but have made no difference. This is the king's fault, war is the only way to solve this and the colonies are ready.
