Hull's Proclamation To Canada

From Parks Canada - The War of 1812:

By WILLIAM HULL, Brigadier General and commander of the North Western Army of the United States.

INHABITANTS of CANADA! After thirty years of PEACE & prosperity, the UNITED STATES have been driven to Arms. The injuries & aggressions, the insults & indignities of Great Britain have once more left them no alternative but manly resistance or unconditional submission.
