Lords (of the ocean)

,—the sensible and spirited people of Great Britain, who have a naval force considerably superior to all the other states of Europe put together, yet servilely do homage to a nest of African pirates, and pay a yearly tribute to a set of robbers, whom they ought to root out and extirpate from the face of the earth; a much more noble act than the extirpation of the French people.
