French perspective

From the French periodical Revue rétrospective Volume 3 Jul-Déc 1885 are the letters sent by the marquis d’Eguilles, sometimes known as the French Ambassador – Correspondance inédite du marquis d’Eguilles. He was arrested after the Battle of Culloden and was under parole first in Inverness then Carlisle and finally returning home via Berwick, Newcastle, and Flessingue in Holland with a prisoner exchange in May 1747. He sorely missed his family and friends and wrote prolifically about the rebellion and the conditions afterwards.FrançaiseMore letters can be found in Annales de l’École libre des sciences politiques, Volume 2 (1887) in the article G. Lefèvre-Pontalis called La Mission du Marquis D’égullles en Écosse auprès de Charles-Édouard..Française
