You will be emancipated from tyranny and oppression, and restored to the dignified station of freemen. [...] If the barbarous and savage policy of Great Britain be pursued, and the savages are let loose to murder our citizens, and butcher our women and children, this war will be a war of extermination. [...] The United States offer you Peace, Liberty, and Security - your choices lie between these and WAR, slavery, and destruction. Choose then, but choose wisely; and may HE who knows the justice of our cause, and who holds in his hand the fate of nations, guide you to a result the most compatible with your rights and interests, your peace and prosperity.

Kingston Gazette, August 18, 1812
