Placeholder title. In Le Vieux Cordelier n. 3 (1793), Desmoulins cites extensively from Daudé's translation of Gordon's Discourses on Tacitus (p. 30-39). He does so in an argument against unlimited revolutionary government. See Rachel Hammersley, French revolutionaries and English republicans, p. 136-158.
