Half title: A letter addressed to two great men.
Attributed to John Douglas--National Union Catalog pre-1956 imprints.
The "Two great men" were Pitt and the Duke of Newcastle. The work has also been attributed to Douglas' patron, the Earl of Bath, who probably inspired it.
The author argues that in any treaty of peace with France, Great Britain should retain possession of Canada and Nova Scotia (Acadia) in order to ensure the peace of her American colonies.
