Here is the travel account in America of leading French Journalist and Revolutionary Jacques Pierre Brissot de Warville. Brissot was one of the writers who have exerted the most influence on the success of the French Revolution, or at least have the most accelerated its movement. His early works on legislation, his many pamphlets, speeches in the Legislative Assembly and the Convention, demonstrated dedication to the principles of the French Revolution.

Brissot believed that American ideals could help improve French government—so in July, 1788 Brissot arrived in Boston. He journeyed to Philadelphia via New Haven, New York and Trenton. During the next few months he traveled throughout New England, had a political dinner with James Madison, and even spent 3 days with Washington at Mount Vernon, before returning home in December in the midst of the Revolution.

Brissot returned to Paris with interesting observations and commentary on American political institutions, law and commerce, manners and customs, the prison system, slavery and the abolition movement, duty and trade of Tobacco, cotton cultivation, and much on the Quakers, whom he greatly admired. The domination of radical Jacobins during their violent 'Reign of Terror' resulted in a guillotine execution for their influential opponent Brissot de Warville in 1793. This account was originally published in America only a few months after the brutal decapitation in October 1793.
