. This passage is an almost verbatim rendering from Cool Thoughts
, p. 39–40. In the pamphlet, the passages “that Great Britain . . . to repay” and
“that it will be more . . . its dominions” are in quotation marks, but Galloway's
source has not been determined. This letter deals with, and all quoted passages are
taken from, the second section of Cool Thoughts
: “On the Expence of Great Britain in the Settlement and Defence of the American Colonies”
