1362. COLONIES (The American), Toryism of George III. and.—

The tory education
of the King was the first preparation
for that change in the British government
which that party never ceases to wish. This
naturally ensured tory administration during
his life. At the moment he came to the
throne and cleared his hands of his enemies
by the peace of Paris, the assumptions of
unwarrantable right over America commenced.
They were so signal, and followed
one another so close, as to prove they were
part of a system, either to reduce it under
absolute subjection, and thereby make it an
instrument for attempts on Great Britain
itself, or to sever it from Britain, so that it
might not be a weight in the Whig scale.
This latter alternative, however, was not considered
as the one which would take place.
They knew so little of America, that they
thought it unable to encounter the little finger
of Great Britain.—
