Fitzsimmons [pseud.]:

ESSAYS UPON FRENCH SPOLIATIONS, WITH SOME OBSERVATIONS UPON THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMERCE. BY FITZSIMMONS, A NATIVE OF PENNSYLVANIA. "COMMERCE IS THE GOLDEN CIRCLE OF THE GLOBE."

James G. Watts. October, Philadelphia: 1826 Stitched, 31 + [1] pp. Tanned, Good+. The bibliographers are content to call the author 'Fitzsimmons,' with no suggestion of his true name. These are twenty short essays, preceded by an introduction 'To the People of the United States,' exposing "the manifest injustice of the French government, in refusing to make indemnity to our fellow citizens, for unlawful seizures and condemnations of their property," which occurred primarily at the end of the 18th century during the French war with England and the American quasi-war with France. The French Spoliation claims were America's Bleak House, with some litigation extending into the second half of the nineteenth century. AI 24545 [9]. Sabin 24629. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
