Sermon delivered in response to Charles Edward Stuart's invasion of England in the early months of 1746, which raised concerns in the British colonies of their collective fate if the Stuart dynasty were to regain the throne: "And what Progress did King James, the supposed Father of the present Pretender, make towards bringing upon us this Yoke of Bondage, together with all the Miseries of an arbitrary and tyrannical Government? He took such large Steps, under the Influence of popish and despotic Principles, that, in a few Years, he went a great way" (pp. 26-7).
