The History of the Rise, Progress, and Establishment of the Independence of the United States of America, Volume 3
"The following work is not confined to the contest between Great Britain and the United States of America, but includes all the other parts of the war which originated from that contest. ... The form of letters, instead of chapters, is not altogether imaginary, as the author, from his arrival in America in 1770, maintained a correspondence with gentlemen in London, Rotterdam and Paris, answering in general to the prefixed dates."--Preface.
