Broadside published at the time when fears of an invasion of the British Isles by Napoleon were at their height, stating the risk posed by Napoleon, the 'Murder, Rapine, Slavery and Death, in Cruel and horrible Wantonness' he has committed, and the duty of the British to assist in the defence of their country. The publisher James Asperne (1757-1820) was best-known for publishing the popular 'European Magazine'.
