Voltaire left France, reached London in August, 1726, went as guest to the house of a rich merchant at Wandsworth, and remained three years in England. He was there when George I died, and George II became king. He published his Henriade. He wrote his "History of Charles XII." He read "Gulliver''s Travels" as a new book, and might have been present at the first night of The Beggar''s Opera. He was there when Sir Isaac Newton died. In 1731 he published at Rouen the Lettres sur les Anglais, which appeared in England in 1733 in the volume from which they are here reprinted.
