A most interesting political work, hostile to America's progressive politics and France's contributions towards republican government in the United States, written by a confirmed royalist. The author arrived in New York in 1832, and his letters discuss the political climate in almost every geographic region of the United States, including New England, the Carolinas, and even as far west as the Alleghenies and the Missouri River. "The author attempts to give a complete picture of American life, institutions, and government, and in order to document his attacks he skillfully draws many of his materials from American newspapers..." - Monaghan. "Valuable study of American life by a royalist with little sympathy for democratic institutions" - Howes. Quite rare. Not in Clark. OCLC locates only one copy. HOWES S42. SABIN 75508. MONAGHAN 1291.
