11 A POEM addressed to the United States of America. By

David Humphries, Esq., colonel in the service of the United

States, and aid-de-camp to H. E. the Commander-in-chief. Quarto.

First printed at Newhaven, Connecticut, and reprinted in Paris.
To inspire our countrymen now in arms, or who may hereafter be called

into the field, with perseverance and fortitude, through every species of
difficulty and danger to continue their exertions for the defence of their
country and the preservation of its liberties, is the object of this address.”

12 OBSERVATIONs on the importance of the American Revolution,

and the means of making it a benefit to the world. To which
is' added, a letter from M. Turgot, late comptroller-general
of the finances of France; with an appendix, containing a
translation of the will of M. Fortuné Ricard, lately published

in France. By Richard Price, D.D., LL.D., F.R.S., &c. 8vo.

This tract, which was originally intended only for America, was translated

into French by the celebrated Mirabeau. The doctor speaks of the
American revolution as “a revolution which opens a new prospect in
human affairs, and begins a new æra in the history of mankind,- a revo-
lution by which Britons themselves will be the greatest gainers, if wise
enough to improve properly the check that has been given to the despot-
ism of their ministers, and to catch the flame of virtuous liberty which bas
saved their American brethren.” He uses very strong language with
respect to religious establishments, the spirit of which he condemns as
contrary to the spirit of Christianity; and be hopes that no such monster
will ever be known in America, as human authority in matters of religion.

1785. 13 ConsIDERATIONS on the order of Cincinnatus; to which are

added, as well several original papers relative to that institution, as also a letter from the late M. Turgot, comptroller of the finances in France, to Dr. Price, on the constitutions of America ; and an abstract of Dr. Price's Observations on the importance of the American Revolution ; with notes and reflections upon that work. Translated from the French of the Count de Mirabeau.

Johnson, 8vo. A translation of No. 34, of 1784.--" In this work much eloquence is em

ployed to prove that the institution of the order of Cincinnatus is the
creation of a military nobility, which will in time form a dangerous aristo-
cratic power, supported by numbers, military force, general respect, the
right of inheritance, the power of holding assemblies at pleasure, and
revenue.” Monthly Review.-" The language of the Count relating to the
new order is animated and indignant, though clear and precise; the
translator frequently soars above him, and sometimes seems to be lost in

the clouds into which he is raised.” Critical Review.
