Notes

Observations on the French Revolution and on the constitution of Scotland, in the form of a series of letters. Long review in Analytical Review (vol. 8 (1790), p. 307-315) reveals that the book is a pseudo-translation: 'Of these sentiments is the author of the work before us, who, we are informed, is no Frenchman, but a gentleman in Edinburgh, who has distinguished himself for patriotism, by taking a principal part in the municipal reform in Scotland. (...) They are written in the character of an intelligent Frenchman, who, from having incurred some popular odium, is supposed to have retired to this country'. Author is in favour of the revolution and added a passionate dedication to the National Assembly.
