Title:
Document, 1794 July 23
Abstract:
Regrets that he did not know Anstey was at Bath when he passed through City. "Many great and unexpected Events have taken place since we parted. We live in Times that teem with them. A great and wonderful Drama is exhibiting on the Stage of Europe, perhaps of the World-We are Spectators of the first Act-What may succeed or what the Catastrophe will be, human Prevision cannot discern-Peace and Domestic Comforts rise in Value, as they become precarious, and Individual Misery, by abounding, produces national Distress; and yet, even in this Age of Reason and Philosophy, the Passions do not cease to fan the flames of War, and cause them to rage, to spread, and to desolate."
