about

This volume, the first compilation of the political correspondence of Beaumarchais, author of the Marriage of Figaro, will shed light on the controversial diplomatic history of the American Revolution. The evidence presented here reveals that the author did mastermind the policy of aid to the American Revolution which has been attributed to the foreign affairs minister, Vergennes, to whom Beaumarchais addressed most of the correspondence in this volume.
