Side 185 - ... moderate use of those rights of retaliation, which the Berlin and Milan decrees necessarily called into action, to reconcile neutral states to those measures, which the conduct of the enemy had rendered unavoidable ; and which his majesty has at all times professed his readiness to revoke, so soon as the decrees of the enemy, which gave occasion to them, should be formally and unconditionally repealed, and the commerce of neutral nations restored to its accustomed course.
Side 346 - The enemy, however, succeeded ; their detachments being the strongest, and having been concealed in the woods nearer the hill than we were ; by which success they strengthened materially their own position, and had in their power increased means of annoying ours.
Side 461 - Lieutenant-General addressed to Earl Bathurst, one of his majesty's principal secretaries of state, of which the following is an extract and a copy : — Montreal, Aug.
