Unnamed author reports in an introduction that these ten odes were written for publication during the 1800 presidential election campaign, but that he was convinced by friends to hold off publishing them so as to avoid prosecution under the federal sedition law of 1798. The final ode pays particular attention to the Richmond Federalists publishers John Stewart and Augustine Davis, the latter of whom is portrayed as a lapsed Republican of little wit or talent. Only known copy at Library Company of Philadelphia (for Historical Society of Pennsylvania).
