First published in London, this is the record of Margarot's trial for having been a member of an association known as 'The General Convention of the friends of the people.' It manifested "a dangerous and destructive tendency," imitative of France, to speak in favor of liberty for Ireland. Despite his impassioned speeches to the court, published here, Margarot was convicted and sentenced to banishment from England for fourteen years. This is one of several 1794 American editions.
