Notes

On his translation activities, see Leech, 'Cosmopolitanism', pp. 95ff. On his entrepreneurial activities and networks, see Annie Jordan, 'A Tale of Three Patriots in a Revolutionary World' (Early American Studies, Spring 2012, vol.10 no.2, pp.360-81). By 1796, he was estimated to be worth $120,000 from his role as a broker, especially from his time spent in Hamburg as agent to the Paris-based American businessman James Swan, who was the primary "subsistence" trader for revolutionary France. Barlow returned to the USA in 1805, became a bank president and supported President Thomas Jefferson and then his political heir, James Madison. He died in Poland from pneumonia while trying to negotiate a comprehensive agreement with Napoleon to avoid a "double war" with France and England (Jordan, p.373-74).
