England, Spain, France, and other nations competed with each other to own colonies in North America, South America, Asia, and Africa. Their competition often led to wars. The mercantilists reasoned that even wars were worth the price, because each colony would be a help to its conqueror. England needed raw materials that her colonies could supply. At the time this was published, in July of , the United States had been at war with Spain for about two months, and the U.S. Navy had already destroyed the enemy's entire Pacific fleet.

The state regulates the price of exported raw goods and imported finished goods to create captive markets and large profit; The Stuart Kings, English Civil War, and Puritan Protectorate created political instability in England, making it impossible to be enforce all of the commercial regulations they placed upon the colonies. Of our commercial objects, Spain receives favorably, our Bread stuff, Salted Fish, Wood, Ships, Tar, Pitch, and Turpentine. On our Meals, however, as well as on those of other foreign Countries when re-exported to their Colonies, they have lately imposed Duties, of from half a Dollar, to two Dollars the Barrel, the Duties being so proportioned to the current price of their own Flour, as that.

This innovative look at previously neglected poetry in British America represents a major contribution to our understanding of early American culture. Spanning the period from the Glorious Revolution () to the end of King George's War (), this study critically reconstitutes the literature. The principal character in this work is not Bonaparte, but Luís de Onís (), the Spanish minister to the United States for much of the period. Onís was legitimately wary of American and particularly French efforts to leverage Spain’s weakness in order to acquire some of her colonies, and sought ways to frustrate them.
