Howes R-361. Sabin 72032. Monaghan 1241. vide JCB II-2810 and Gephart II-14314. A rather ingenious and naive look at the country by one who was attached to Rochambeau's army, as the chaplain, during the American Revolution. This is a sentimental account of Rochambeau's aid to the Americans against the British enemy, and his contribution in assuring victory. Monaghan offers credible proof that this writer and the scholar Claude C. Robin, with whom this author is often confused, are different people, despite the cataloguing in Sabin and the BM.
