Excerpt from A Short Review of the Political State of Great-Britain, at the Commencement of the Year One Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighty-Seven
The political situation of this country at the present juncture, may, perhaps, be regarded as forming one of those epochas; and may merit consideration, as detach'd from the general mass of time and matter, which constitute and compose what we denominate history. My object, in writing the following sheets, is principally to present a picture of the actual and existing moment, without either taking any ample retrospect of past transactions, or extending my conjectures far into an unascertain'd and imaginary futurity.
