Notes

First edition. William Eden (1744-1814) had been appointed by Lord North as part of the five-man commission for conciliation with America, led by Eden's friend the fifth earl of Carlisle. The commission failed, unable to conciliate the rebellious colonists. Eden's Four Letters provided a defence of the ministry's policy of negotiating with the Americans, alongside giving an analysis of the war and other political issues. The work was successful, with a second edition and Edinburgh and Dublin editions following in the same year.
