A letter by Member of Parliament for Westminster Charles James Fox (1749-1806) to his constituents addressing the motives behind his recent motions in Commons, particularly his efforts in averting conflict with France. It is notable that the Fox wrote his remarks on 26th January 1793, six days prior to the French declaring war on Britain, which may account in part for the immense popularity of the publication, with 16 editions appearing within a year.
