Synopsis
From the part Mr. Burke took in the American Revolution, it was natural that I should consider him a friend to Mankind; and as our acquaintance commenced on that ground, it would have been more agreeable to me, to have bad cause to continue in that opinion, than to change it. At the time Mr. Burke made his violent speech last winter in the English Parliament, against the French Revolution and the National A ssembly, I was in Paris, and had written to him, but a short time before, to inform him how prosperously matters were going on. Soon after this, I saw bis advertisement of the pamphlet he intended to publish. As the attack was to ne made in a language but little studied, and less understood in France; and as every thing suffers by translation ;I promised some of the Friends of the Revolution in that country, that whenever Mr. Burke s Pamphlet came forth, I would answer it. This appeared to me the more necessary to be done, when I saw the flagrant misrepresentations which Mr. Burke s Pamphlet contains ;and that, while it is an outrageous abuse on the French Revolution, and the principles of Liberty, it is an imposition on the rest of the world. I am the more astonished, and disappointed, at this conduct in Mr. Burke, as, from the circumstance I am going to mention, I had formed other expectations.
