Set during the period of the “Quasi-War,” this French author wrote, in part, to refute Pickering’s characterization of France being disingenuous in helping America during the American Revolution. His argument presents a lengthy list of how France aided America with money, officers, arms, and good credit advanced by their King to the American Congress. Pickering’s own pamphlet was a response to the remonstrance of the French ambassador Pierre-Auguste Adet of American. Tanguy’s pamphlet was a reply to it. A fairly scarce Philadelphia imprint.
