Paine's response to the French people after having been awarded French citizenship and a seat in the National Convention. Possibly translated by Sophie de Grouchy, Condorcet's wife and his earlier translator during 1791. It was read out in the Convention by his interpreter, Bancal des Issarts who had accompanied him to France from England, along with the S.C.I. lawyer, John Frost.
