The Alls

The character of Europe in 1800.

THE ALLS.

France fights all.
Britain pays all.
Russia threatens all.
Prussia humbugs all.
Switzerland is nearly plundered by all.
*Spain does nothing at all.
Germany thinks itself all in all.
The U States is spoliated by all.
And lest destruction should come upon all,
May heaven have mercy upon us all,
Amen.

*How far is this from the truth at the present day?

The Ohio Repository (Canton, Ohio) Mar 1, 1821
