Notes

Second edition. Robert Walpole had sought to reduce the interest on the national debt by creating a national sinking fund. The Earl of Bath publishing a strong criticism of Walpole's use of this fund in his 1734 treatise An Enquiry into the Conduct of our Domestic Affairs. The present work is Walpole's rebuttal, and a defence of his management of the sinking fund against the Earl of Bath's charges.
