This file includes both Common Sense by Thomas Paine (1776) and Edmund Burke's Speech on Conciliation with America (1775). According to Wikipedia: "Common Sense is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine. It was first published anonymously on January 10, 1776, during the American Revolution. Common Sense, signed "Written by an Englishman", became an immediate success... Edmund Burke PC (12 January [NS] 1729-9 July 1797) was an Irish statesman, author, orator, political theorist and philosopher who, after moving to England, served for many years in the House of Commons of Great Britain as a member of the Whig party. He is mainly remembered for his support of the cause of the American Revolutionaries, and for his later opposition to the French Revolution. The latter led to his becoming the leading figure within the conservative faction of the Whig party, which he dubbed the "Old Whigs", in opposition to the pro-French Revolution "New Whigs", led by Charles James Fox... In the House of Commons on 22 March 1775 Burke delivered a speech (published in May 1775) on reconciliation with America."
