1792:  The Revolution of America. A New Translation, With Notes. By Abbe Guillame Thomas Francois Raynal.  Text extracted from Raynal’s “Histoire philosophique et politique des etablissements et du Commerce des Europeens dans les Deux Indes,” first published in 1781.  Many subsequent editions were published, in both English and French.

Excerpt: “Ye people of North-America, let the example of all the nations that have gone before you, and above all that of your mother-country, serve you for instruction.  Fear the affluence of gold, which brings with luxury the corruption of manners, the contempt of laws. Fear a too unequal distribution of riches, which exhibits a small number of citizens in opulence, and a great multitude of citizens in extreme poverty; which springs the insolence of the former, and the debasement of the latter.”  Published by Ashbel Stoddard, Hudson (1792).
