A Canadian Toast To President Madison

The Celtic magazine, Volume 6 By Alexander Mackenzie, Alexander Macgregor, Alexander Macbain:

Mention is also made of a famous Scotch dinner at Halifax, in 1814, where no less than fifty-two toasts were drank.  The twenty-sixth may be repeated:--"May James Madison and all his faction be soon compelled to resign the reins of government in America, and seek a peace establishment with their friend Bonaparte at Elba."  Airs--"The Rogue's March," and "Go to the devil and shake yourself."
