"The following pages have been compiled by a gentleman lately resident in Paris, partly from his own notes and observations, and partly from modern guides to Paris ... His object has been to compress into a small compass, every fact which can be useful to his numerous countrymen, who may be tempted to visit that gay metropolis, in consequence of the wonderful events of which it has lately been the scene, and of the restraint which a war of ten years has imposed upon their curiosity.”--Page [3].
