Excerpt from The Loyalist Poetry of the Revolution
But contemporaneous invective, while it rarely weighs unduly with posterity, is still worthy of consideration when it comes as the expression of public, rather than private hate; provided that a due allowance is always made for the effect of party spirit, on even the clearest view. A coin seen through water does not appear more distorted from reality, than a character examined through this medium. It is, therefore, mere pedantry and ignorance, as we are told by one of the sages of history, to expect, from minds inflamed by the passions of civil war, the temperate judg ment and the measured words of order and tranquillity. It is in this light that this volume should be viewed. The persons assailed in it, like their assailants, have passed away: even of those to whom their features were familiar, but few remain. The sting of personality is therefore avoided; and while the fame of the really good and worthy.
