Burke analyzes several issues troubling the country, inlcuding the situation in America; he "touches briefly on the effect of the current state of affairs in the colonies and the colonists's growing feeling of independence, but says: 'a volume might be written on this melancholy subject; but it were better to leave it entirely to reflexions of the reader himself than not to treat it in the extent it deserves.'" - Adams.
