Barlow wrote the letter in his capacity as member of a commission set up by the National Convention in order to rally the Piedmontese to the cause of the French Revolution. He was possibly assisted by his fellow commissioner Henri Grégoire. In the preface to the 1795 translation, Barlow explains that French and Italian versions of the text were distributed in Piedmont and other Italian regions in the winter of 1792-1793.
