Howes L83: "Said to have been edited by Thomas Paine, under the direction of Langworthy." Sabin 38903: "Contains many curious particulars relating to the war between Great Britain and the Colonies. Published under the direction of Edward Langworthy, of Georgia."JCB 1772-1800, II, 3534, quoting the Preface: "These Memoirs and Letters were transmitted from America to England [by Langworthy] who was a member of Congress from the State of Georgia. The reader may expect to find, in almost everything that relates to Lee, a great deal of the strong republican character. His attachment to principles of liberty without regard to place, made him the citizen of the world, rather than of any country.". Bookseller Inventory # 27976
