The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
Delve into what it was like to live during the eighteenth century by reading the first-hand accounts of everyday people, including city dwellers and farmers, businessmen and bankers, artisans and merchants, artists and their patrons, politicians and their constituents. Original texts make the American, French, and Industrial revolutions vividly contemporary.

The first seven letters are spurious, and have been attributed to both John Vardill ("Poplicola") and John Randolph. They are reprinted from "Letters from General Washington, to several of his friends in the year 1776," London, 1777. In many copies of the 1796 edition a sheet was inserted containing a letter from Washington, dated March 3, 1797, denying the authenticity of these first seven letters. Cf. Ford, W.C.
